(SNF1) family in yeast and animals Genes repressed by glucose include those required for growth on alternative fermentable carbon sources like sucrose, galactose and maltose, and genes required The SNF1 protein kinase family currently comprises for oxidative metabolism and hence for growth on SNF1 itself in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, non-fermentable carbon sources such as glycerol and the AMP-activated protein kinases (AMPK) in mam- ethanol [38, 78]. The SNF1 gene was originally de- mals, and the SNF1-related protein kinases (SnRKs) fined via mutations which would not grow on Plant Molecular Biology Springer Journals
