LEU2 Leu2p

LEU2, Lyt-3, 3-Isopropylmalate Dehydrogenase
The CD8 antigen is a cell surface glycoprotein found on most cytotoxic T lymphocytes that mediates efficient cell-cell interactions within the immune system. The CD8 antigen, acting as a coreceptor, and the T-cell receptor on the T lymphocyte recognize antigens displayed by an antigen presenting cell (APC) in the context of class I MHC molecules. The functional coreceptor is either a homodimer composed of two alpha chains, or a heterodimer composed of one alpha and one beta chain. Both alpha and beta chains share significant homology to immunoglobulin variable light chains. This gene encodes the CD8 beta chain isoforms. Multiple alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding distinct membrane associated or secreted isoforms have been described. A pseudogene, also located on chromosome 2, has been identified.

In this study, we engineered CEN.PK2-1C, a leucine auxotrophic strain having a LEU2 gene mutation, for the production of isobutanol and 3-methyl-1-butanol.
Scarless gene deletion in methylotrophic Hansenula polymorpha by using mazF as counter-selectable marker.
Zhang et al., Beijing, China. In Anal Biochem, 2014
The applicability of the strategies in markerless or scarless deletion of PEP4, LEU2, and TRP1 indicates that this study provides easy, time-efficient, and host-independent protocols for single or multiple genetic manipulations in H. polymorpha.
Dissecting the cis and trans elements that regulate adjacent-gene coregulation in Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
McAlear et al., Middletown, United States. In Eukaryot Cell, 2014
We observed that coupled corepression of the gene pair under heat shock was abrogated when the two genes were separated by an actively expressed RNA polymerase (Pol) II transcription unit (the LEU2 gene) but not when the inserted LEU2 gene was repressed.
