Abstract

  The transcriptional activator protein Gcn4p increases the transcription of many genes that code for amino acid synthesis genes during amino acid starvation in <i>Saccharomyces cerevisiae.</i> Here we showed that after the disruption of <i>C-GCN4</i>, a homolog in <i>Candida maltosa</i> of <i>GCN4</i> in <i>S. cerevisiae</i>, formed pseudohyphae in minimal medium. This is the first report that a <i>GCN4</i> homolog is involved in the control of morphological transition.<br>
