Abstract

species are currently the only known organisms with two types of genes encoding UDP-glucose/-galactose 4-epimerase, and . A strain deleted for exhibited a severe galactosylation defect and a decrease in activity and in UDP-galactose content when grown in glucose-rich medium (2 % glucose), indicating that Uge1p is a major UDP-glucose/-galactose 4-epimerase under these growth conditions. In contrast, was efficiently expressed and involved in galactosylation of cell-surface proteins in low-glucose medium (0.1 % glucose and 2 % glycerol), but not in galactose-containing medium. In a ΔΔ strain, the galactosylation defect was suppressed and UDP-galactose content restored to wild-type levels in galactose-containing medium. Disruption of , encoding galactose-1-phosphate uridylyltransferase, in the ΔΔ strain reversed suppression of the galactosylation defect and reduced levels of UDP-galactose, indicating that galactose is transported from the medium to the cytosol and is converted into UDP-galactose via galactose 1-phosphate by Gal7p in .
