    The CDC4 gene of Saccharomyces cerevisiae encodes an essential function that is required for G1-S and G2-M transitions during mitosis and at various stages during meiosis. We have isolated a functional homologue of CDC4 ( CaCDC4) from the pathogenic yeast Candida albicans by complementing the S....

    Background: There is increasing evidence that tissue-specific modifications of basic cellular functions play an important role in development and disease. To identify the functions of COPI coatomer-mediated membrane trafficking in Drosophila development, we were aiming to create loss-of-function...

    Coatomer-mediated sorting of proteins is based on the physical interaction between coatomer (COP1) and targeting motifs found in the cytoplasmic domains of membrane proteins. For example, binding of COP1 to dilysine (KKXX) motifs induces specific retrieval of tagged proteins from the Golgi back...

    The Tupl-Ssn6 corepressor complex regulates the expression of several sets of genes, including genes that specify mating type in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Repression of mating-type genes occurs when Tupl-Ssn6 is brought to the DNA by the Matα2 DNA-hinding protein and assembled...

    We isolated a novel yeast α-COP mutant, ret1-3, in which α-COP is degraded after cells are shifted to a restrictive temperature. ret1-3 cells cease growth at 28°C and accumulate the ER precursor of carboxypeptidase Y (p1 CPY). In a screen for high copy suppressors of these defects, we...

    Although the abundant sterile alpha motif (SAM) domain was originally classified as a protein-protein interaction domain, it has recently been shown that certain SAM domains have the ability to bind RNA, defining a new type of post-transcriptional gene regulator. To further understand the...
