Demonstrates the importance of the products of SIR2, SIR3, SIR4 and ABF1 in telomere(TEL)-plasmid segregation by the X-telomere associated sequence (X-TAS) in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Role of ABF1 in TEL-plasmid segregation; Importance of the Abf1p-binding site within the X-TAS; Role of the ARS consensus sequence within the X-TAS.

    In this study we provide general information on the little studied eukaryotic ribosomal protein rpL15. Saccharomyces cerevisiae has two genes, YRPL15A and YRPL15B that could potentially code for yeast rpL15 (YrpL15). YRPL15A is essential while YRPL15B is dispensable. However, a plasmid-borne...

    In diploid Saccharomyces cerevisiae cells, bud-site selection is determined by two cortical landmarks, Bud8p and Bud9p, at the distal and proximal poles, respectively. Their localizations depend on the multigenerational proteins Rax1p/Rax2p. Many genes involved in bud-site selection were...
