Regulation of carotenogenesis in the red yeast Xanthophyllomyces dendrorhous: the role of the transcriptional co-repressor complex Cyc8-Tup1 involved in catabolic repression
(Biomed Central, 2016)
Background: The yeast Xanthophyllomyces dendrorhous produces carotenoids of commercial interest, including astaxanthin and beta-carotene. Although carotenogenesis in this yeast and the expression profiles of the genes ...
Huckebein is part of a combinatorial repression code in the anterior blastoderm
(Academic Press INC Elsevier ScienceSan Diego, 2012)
The hierarchy of the segmentation cascade responsible for establishing the Drosophila body plan is composed by gap, pair-rule and segment polarity genes. However, no pair-rule stripes are formed in the anterior regions of ...
Sugarcane genes differentially expressed during water deficit
To identify genes that are up and down-regulated by water deficit in sugarcane we used the macroarray methodology and the expression level of 3 575 independent sugarcane cDNAs was measured by hybridization with RNA extracted ...
Identification and frequency of transposable elements in Eucalyptus
Transposable elements (TE) are major components of eukaryotic genomes and involved in cell regulation and organism evolution. We have analyzed 123,889 expressed sequence tags of the Eucalyptus Genome Project database and ...
The involvement of mig1 from xanthophyllomyces dendrorhous in catabolic repression: An active mechanism contributing to the regulation of carotenoid productiom
(Public Library of Science, 2016-09-13)
The red yeast X. dendrorhous is one of the few natural sources of astaxanthin, a carotenoid used in aquaculture for salmonid fish pigmentation and in the cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries for its antioxidant properties. ...
