Not Simply the Induction of Alternative Oxidase: The AOD2 and AOD5 Transcription Factors Play Roles in Regulation of Metabolism and Energy Production in Neurospora crassaDownload
Mitochondria are important organelles in most eukaryotic organisms as they supply the majority of the ATP needed for cellular functions. Although mitochondria contain their own DNA, the vast majority of mitochondrial proteins are encoded in the nucleus. Thus, when mitochondria experience stress...
The Oxa2 protein of Neurospora crassa plays a critical role in the biogenesis of cytochrome oxidase and defines a ubiquitous subbranch of the Oxa1/YidC/Alb3 protein familyDownload
Proteins of the Oxa1/YidC/Alb3 family mediate the insertion of proteins into membranes of mitochondria, bacteria, and chloroplasts. Here we report the identification of a second gene of the Oxa1/YidC/Alb3 family in the genome of Neurospora crassa, which we have named oxa2. Its gene product, Oxa2,...
The role of YVH1, a dual specificity phosphatase, in the production of alternative oxidase in the filamentous fungus Neurospora crassaDownload
Alternative oxidase (AOX) is a single protein enzyme that carries electrons from ubiquinol to molecular oxygen. AOX is induced in many organisms, including Neurospora crassa, when the standard electron transport chain is blocked through various inhibitors or mutations. A knockout (KO) for a dual...
