Nosaka K, et al. (1989) A possible role for acid phosphatase with thiamin-binding activity encoded by PHO3 in yeast. FEMS Microbiol Lett 51(1):55-9
Abstract: Periplasmic soluble thiamin-binding protein in Saccharomyces cerevisiae (Iwashima, A. et al. (1979) Biochim. Biophys. Acta 577, 217-220) was demonstrated to be encoded by PHO3 gene that codes for thiamin repressible acid phosphatase (Schweingruber, M.E. et al. (1986) J. Biol. Chem. 261, 15877-15882) by genetic analysis. The pho3 mutant cells of S. cerevisiae in contrast to the parent cells have markedly reduced activity of the uptake of [14C]thiamin phosphates, suggesting that thiamin repressible acid phosphatase plays a role in the hydrolysis of thiamin phosphates in the periplasmic space prior to the uptake of their thiamin moieties by S. cerevisiae.
