Mutation of Saccharomyces cerevisiae Preventing Uptake of S-Adenosylmethionine

Kemet D. Spence
1971 Journal of Bacteriology  
A mutant has been isolated whose aberration severely restricts the ability of cells of Saccharomyces cerevisiae to take up S-adenosylmethionine. The mutation apparently also affects adenosylhomocysteine uptake, but not that of the S-adenosylmethionine moieties adenine, homocysteine, homoserine, or methionine, nor the sulfonium compound, S-methylmethionine. It is a single, chromosomal mutation whose expression is not dependent on the presence of ammonium ions. SPENCE on May 8, 2020 by guest
