Sugars like glucose and fructose induce death of yeast cells within a few hours, in the absence of additional nutrients to support growth, while cells incubated in water remain viable for weeks. This sugar-induced cell death (SICD) by glucose and fructose required glucose or fructose phosphorylation since yeast cells deficient in hexose phosphorylation did not die. However, when hexose phosphorylation is restored by complementation with Arabidopsis thaliana hexokinase, the cells died. The affinity of A. thaliana hexokinase is about 400 times higher for glucose than for fructose, therefore, A. thaliana hexokinase was further utilized to study the role of hexose phosphorylation in SICD. The rate of SICD of hexokinase-deficient yeast cells expressing A. thaliana hexokinase was significantly slower in fructose than in glucose, indicating that SICD is determined by the rate of hexose phosphorylation. The significance of hexose phosphorylation and its role in SICD is discussed.
