The one-gene mutation in the tert-butyl hydroperoxide-resistant mutant hyd1-190 of the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe led to a 4-fold increase in resistance to t-BuOOH and decreased specific concentrations of superoxide and total thiols in comparison with the parental strain hyd+. It suggested an unbalanced redox state of the cells, which induced continuously increased specific activities of glutathione peroxidase, glutathione reductase and glutathione S-transferase and decreased activities of the antioxidant enzymes superoxide dismutases and glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase to regulate the redox balance of the mutation-induced permanent, low-level but tolerable internal stress. These results may contribute to the understanding of internal, oxidative stress-related human diseases.
