Petit T, et al. (2000) Hexokinase regulates kinetics of glucose transport and expression of genes encoding hexose transporters in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. J Bacteriol 182(23):6815-8
Abstract: Glucose transport kinetics and mRNA levels of different glucose transporters were determined in Saccharomyces cerevisiae strains expressing different sugar kinases. During exponential growth on glucose, a hxk2 null strain exhibited high-affinity hexose transport associated with an elevated transcription of the genes HXT2 and HXT7, encoding high-affinity transporters, and a diminished expression of the HXT1 and HXT3 genes, encoding low-affinity transporters. Deletion of HXT7 revealed that the high-affinity component is mostly due to HXT7; however, a previously unidentified very-high-affinity component (K(m) = 0.19 mM) appeared to be due to other factors. Expression of genes encoding hexokinases from Schizosaccharomyces pombe or Yarrowia lipolytica in a hxk1 hxk2 glk1 strain prevented derepression of the high-affinity transport system at high concentrations of glucose.
