Abstract

Killer yeasts secrete polypeptide toxins which kill sensitive cells of their own species and frequently those of other species and genera of yeast. In this review we will focus on the molecular biology of the most intensively investigated killer system, the M1- dsRNA-determined Kl killer system of S. cerevisiae. We hope to demonstrate the relevance of this system to many of the vital issues in yeast and general eucaryotic molecular biology.
