Toxicogenomics/proteomics Report

We introduced a yeast open reading frame library into Saccharomyces cerevisiae strain BY4742 to search for genes whose overexpression conferred cadmium resistance to yeast, toward the goal of elucidating the mechanism of cadmium toxicity. As a result, we found that the overexpression of two newly identified genes, Ycg1 and Ydr520c, each conferred strong cadmium resistance to yeast.
