Rochester, United States. In Nature, 1994
Messenger RNA levels of all the genes examined, HIS3, TRP3, STE2, MET19, RAD23, CDC7, CDC9 and ACT1, decline rapidly upon loss of RAD3 activity.
Induction of yeast mating pheromone a-factor by alpha cells.
In Nature, 1983
This induction of a-factor may result from increased synthesis or increased secretion of a-factor, as opposed to modification or stabilization of preexisting a-factor, as part of the a cell response to alpha-factor, as an a ste2 mutant (which cannot respond to alpha-factor) is not induced by alpha-factor.
