Reekmans R, et al. (2005) Old yellow enzyme interferes with Bax-induced NADPH loss and lipid peroxidation in yeast. FEMS Yeast Res 5(8):711-25
Abstract: The yeast transcriptional response to murine Bax expression was compared with the changes induced by H(2)O(2) treatment via microarray technology. Although most of the Bax-responsive genes were also triggered by H(2)O(2) treatment, OYE3, ICY2, MLS1 and BTN2 were validated to have a Bax-specific transcriptional response not shared with the oxidative stress trigger. In knockout experiments, only deletion of OYE3, coding for yeast Old yellow enzyme, attenuated the rate of Bax-induced growth arrest, cell death and NADPH decrease. Lipid peroxidation was completely absent in DeltaOYE3 expressing Bax. However, the absence of OYE3 sensitized yeast cells to H(2)O(2)-induced cell death, and increased the rate of NADPH decrease and lipid peroxidation. Our results clearly indicate that OYE3 interferes with Bax- and H(2)O(2)-induced lipid peroxidation and cell death in Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
