Title

Repression of enzymes of the pentose phosphate pathway by glucose in fission yeast

Abstract

We examine here the effect of carbon sources on the synthesis of the shunt pathway enzymes in the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe growing on a mixture of ethanol and glycerol. δ-Gluconolactone induces practically every one of these enzymes. Glucose in contrast tends to attenuate the synthesis of the majority of them. RNA analysis confirms that their induction and repression reflect changes in the levels of their transcripts.
