Baudouin-Cornu P and Labarre J (2006) Regulation of the cadmium stress response through SCF-like ubiquitin ligases: comparison between Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Schizosaccharomyces pombe and mammalian cells. Biochimie 88(11):1673-85
Abstract: Saccharomyces cerevisiae has developed several mechanisms to cope with exposure to cadmium. In particular, the sulfur compound glutathione plays a pivotal role in cadmium detoxification, and exposure to cadmium leads to a wide reorganization of S. cerevisiae transcriptome and proteome, resulting in a significant increase in glutathione synthesis. Met4, the transcriptional activator of the sulfur metabolism enzymes, is a critical actor in this reorganization. Recent work has uncovered a part of the mechanism of cadmium-induced Met4 regulation, and showed that it occurs trough the SCF ubiquitin ligase complex SCF(Met30). We discuss this regulation in S. cerevisiae and compare it with the regulation of two other transcriptional activators involved in cadmium detoxification: the Schizosaccharomyces pombe Zip1, regulated by SCF(Pof1), and the mammalian Nrf2, regulated by the SCF-like ubiquitin ligase Cul3:Rbx1:Keap1.
