Krawiec Z, et al. (2000) Reactive oxygen species as second messengers? Induction of the expression of yeast catalase T gene by heat and hyperosmotic stress does not require oxygen. Acta Biochim Pol 47(1):201-7
Abstract: It is shown that oxygen is not absolutely needed for stress-induced synthesis of catalase T in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Yeast cells develop heat resistance after exposure to elevated temperatures in anoxia. The levels of catalase activity and thermotolerance are comparable to those in aerobically stressed cells. While these results obviously do not exclude a stress signaling role of reactive oxygen species in some systems, as postulated by other authors, they suggest that the question of the obligatory requirement for reactive oxygen species in other stress signaling systems should be rigorously re-investigated.
