Multi-level response of the yeast genome to glucose

Genome Biol. 2003;4(11):233. doi: 10.1186/gb-2003-4-11-233. Epub 2003 Oct 15.


The yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae shows a great variety of cellular responses to glucose via several glucose-sensing and signaling pathways. Recent microarray analysis has revealed multiple levels of genomic sensitivity to glucose and highlighted the power of genome-wide analysis to detect cellular responses to minute environmental changes.
