Data from: Ergosterol biosynthesis: a fungal pathway for life on land?

Sebastien Dupont, Guillaume Lemetais, Thierry Ferreira, Philippe Cayot, Patrick Gervais & Laurent Beney
Sterols, essential lipids of most eukaryotic cells, ensure important structural and signaling functions. The selection pressure which has led to different dominant sterols in the three eukaryotic kingdoms remains unknown. Here we investigated the influence of the progression in the different steps of the ergosterol biosynthetic pathway (EBP) on the yeast resistance to transitions from aqueous to aerial media, typical perturbations of the higher fungi habitats. Five mutants of the EBP (ergΔ), accumulating different sterol...
