As a ugrad, I did some work in developing a screen in Neurospora
of vacuolar-ATPase function based on the ad3a mutation. This work
was initially done by Foury in Saccharomyces. Basic idea: knockout
of V-ATPase function turned red ade mutants back to wildtype color.
This can be used as a screen for V-ATPase mutants.
Here is what I believe is the reference:
The 31-kDa polypeptide is an essential subunit of the vacuolar ATPase in
Journal of Biological Chemistry, 1990 Oct 25, 265(30):18554-60.
I hope that helps.
