Randez-Gil F, et al. (1995) The expression of a specific 2-deoxyglucose-6P phosphatase prevents catabolite repression mediated by 2-deoxyglucose in yeast. Curr Genet 28(2):101-7
Abstract: 2-deoxyglucose (2-DOG), a non-metabolize analogue of glucose, is taken up by yeast using the same transporter(s) as glucose and is phosphorylated by hexokinases producing 2-deoxyglucose-6-P. We found that in DOGR yeasts, 2-DOG was not able to trigger glucose repression, even at concentrations of 0.5%. This result suggests that the specific 2-DOG-6P phosphatase, the enzyme responsible for the DOGR phenotype, may be involved in inhibiting the process of catabolite repression mediated by 2-DOG.
