Growth properties of strain TSY01 overexpressing individual sugar transporters of S. cerevisiae. S. cerevisiae strain TSY01 lacking all hexose transporters and expressing a bacterial L-arabinose utilization pathway was transformed with plasmids coding for various hexose transporters of S. cerevisiae . Transformants were streaked on agar plates with synthetic complete medium with 20 g/L L-arabinose and incubated at 30°C for ten days. Only cells expressing ScGal2, ScHxt9 or ScHxt10 could grow. Cells transformed with the empty vector p426H7-6HIS served as a negative control.
