Two genes in Saccharomyces cerevisiae, ALR1 and ALR2, encode transmembrane proteins involved in Mg2+ uptake. The present study investigates the phylogenetic relationship of Alr1p/Alr2p with bacterial CorA proteins and some proteins related to Mg2+ influx/efflux transport in mitochondrial and bacterial zinc transporters; including hydrophobic cluster analysis (HCA). The phylogenetic results indicate that the Alrp sequences of S. cerevisiae share a common carboxy-terminus with proteins related to zinc efflux transport. We also analyse the intracellular metal content by particle-induced X-ray emission (PIXE) after cell exposure to cadmium. The PIXE analysis of cadmium-exposed ALR mutants and wild-type yeast cells suggests that Alrp has a central role in cell survival in a cadmium-rich environment.
