Comparison of the ADH1 and TEF promoters activity
In order to analyze the activity of ADH1 and TEF promoters and their usefulness to express sugar transporters from Yarrowia lipolytica, S. cerevisiae EBY.VW4000 (strain deleted for all hexose transporters, kindly provided by Prof. Eckhard Boles ) was used as a host organism. The genes encoding sugar transporters (YALI0C06424g, YALI0C08943g, YALI0F19184g) were cloned into two types of pRS426 plasmid: with S. cerevisiae ADH1 promoter or TEF promoter. The replicative plasmids were cloned into S. cerevisiae.
The transformants were cultivated in YNB medium with maltose as carbon source. After 48 h of culture, cells were centrifuged, washed twice with distilled water and its OD600 was standardized to 10. Several decimal dilutions were prepared: 100, 10-1, 10-2, 10-3, 10-4, 10-5. After the dilutions, cells were spoted in drop test on YNB agar plated with 2% glucose.
The analysis of promoter strength and its usefulness for expression of hexose transporters from Y. lipolytica in S. cerevisiae EBY.VW4000 was analyzed. The 2µ plasmid (pRS426) was used with ADH1 or TEF promoter. After incubation of S. cerevisiae transformants for 48 h at 30°C growth of transformants expressing each of the three transporters under TEF promoter was observed. In turn, expression of only YALI0C06424g transporter was observed when ADH1 promoter was used. The results clearly indicated that AHD1 promoter is not strong enough and thus not appropriate for the analysis of heterologous hexose transporters in the S. cerevisiae EBY.VW4000.
