[…] ture of Fm201 protein was done with the program Swiss Model using Homo sapiens 14-3-3ε protein (2br9A) as the template (Figure ; ). The cis-elements of the promoters Fm201 and RiBMH2 were analyzed on YEASTRACT using S. cerevisiae S288c as the reference.Yeast mutant strains used in this article are constructed with the methods mentioned by van Heusden (, ). The detail information for each strain is […]

[…] or analysis was conducted using a previously published method [, ]. The differentially expressed genes identified by the RNA-seq analysis were searched against all of the transcription factors in the YEASTRACT database ( The number of genes that a transcription factor can regulate in the pool of differentially expressed genes was calculated by YEASTRACT database. Then thi […]
