I remember hearing that brefeldin A doesn't normally get into yeast cells,
so most strains are resistant. People usually use erg6 mutants which have
a defective plasma membrane that allows some brefeldin A to leak in. I
took a quick look at Biological Abstracts and saw the following
Shah and Klausner (1993) Brefeldin A reversibly inhibits secretion in
Saccharomyces cerevisiae. J Biol Chem 268:5345- 8
Graham, Scott and Emr (1993) Brefeldin A reversibly blocks early but not
late protein transport steps in the yeast secretoy pathway. EMBO J 12:869-
Vogel et al. (1993) Brefeldin A causes a defect in secretion in
Saccharomyces cerevisiae. J Biol Chem 268:3040- 3
These papers probably mention what concenrations and conditions to use.
Hope this helps!
