In the pathogenic yeast Candida glabrata, multidrug resistance is associated with the overexpression of drug efflux pumps caused by gain-of-function mutations in the CgPDR1 gene. CgPdr1p transcription factor, which activates the expression of several drug efflux transporter genes, is considered to be a promising target for compounds sensitizing the multidrug-resistant yeast cells. Here, we describe a cell-based screening system for detecting the inhibitory activity of compounds interfering with the CgPdr1p function in a heterologous genetic background of the hypersensitive Saccharomyces cerevisiae mutant strain. The screening is based on the ability to abrogate the growth defect of cells suffering from the galactose-induced and CgPdr1p-driven overexpression of a dominant lethal pma1(D378N) allele placed under the control of the ScPDR5 promoter. The system allows rapid identification of multidrug resistance reversal agents inhibiting the CgPdr1p activity or loss-of-function Cgpdr1 mutations, and is amenable to high-throughput screening on solid or liquid media.CI - (c) 2010 Federation of European Microbiological Societies.
