    Notes: Genes encoding members of the highly conserved QM family have been identified in eukaryotic organisms from yeast to man. Results of previous studies have suggested roles for QM in control of cell growth and proliferation, perhaps as a tumor suppressor, and in energy metabolism. We identified recessive lethal alleles of the Saccharomyces cerevisiae QM homolog GRC5 that increased GCN4 expression when present in multiple copies. These alleles encode truncated forms of the yeast QM protein Grc5p. Using a functional epitope-tagged GRC5 allele, we localized Grc5p to a 60S fraction that contained the large ribosomal subunit. Two-dimensional gel analysis of highly purified yeast ribosomes indicated that Grc5p corresponds to 60S ribosomal protein L9. This identification is consistent with the predicted physical characteristics of eukaryotic QM proteins, the highly biased codon usage of GRC5, and the presence of putative Rap1p-binding sites in the 5′ sequences of the yeast GRC5 gene. © 1997 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.

    Notes: L-A-E double-stranded RNA (dsRNA), when introduced into cells carrying L-A-H and M2 dsRNAs, does not eliminate the L-A-H dsRNA, but (i) L-A-E does lower the copy number of L-A-H dramatically and (ii) L-A-E eliminates M2 dsRNA from the cell. That these two effects of L-A-E are related is shown by the fact that mutants of a strain carrying L-A-H and M2 selected for their resistance to exclusion of M2 by L-A-E [effect (ii)] have an altered L-A-H whose copy number is not lowered by L-A-E [effect (i)]. Although the L-A in K1 strains (L-A-HN in all cases examined) differs significantly both genetically and physically from the L-A in the K2 strain studied (L-A-H), the L-A-HN from the K1 strains can maintain M2 dsRNA, and the L-A-H from the K2 strains can maintain M1 dsRNA.

    Notes: A gene encoding a homologue of the ADP-ribosylation factor (ARF) family of small GTP binding proteins was cloned from a Schizosaccharomyces pombe cDNA library by a functional screen of suppressors of sensitivity to 3-aminotriazole in a gcn3 null strain of Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Two independent isolates each contained the full coding region of the ARF1 gene. The encoded SpARF1 protein has a predicted molecular weight of 20 618 and is 88% and 79% identical to human and S. cerevisiae ARF1 proteins, respectively. As independent isolates were obtained, this effect of the SpARF1 appears to be a real phenomenon, but cannot currently be easily understood within the context of the evidence for a role(s) for ARF proteins in the protein secretory pathway.

    Notes: We have isolated Schizosaccharomyces pombe cDNAs corresponding to the genes his1+ and his5+. The his1 cDNA was isolated by functional complementation of the His- phenotype in a his1-29 gcn3 Saccharomyces cerevisiae strain, while the his5 cDNA was isolated as a suppressor of the 3-amino-1,2,4-triazole (3-AT) sensitivity in a gcn3 S. cerevisiae strain. his1 and his5 are each present in single copy in haploid S. pombe. As is the case with S. cerevisiae, we have found that the growth of wild-type strains of S. pombe is sensitive to 3-AT, an inhibitor of imidazoleglycerol-phosphate dehydratase. This enzyme is encoded by the HIS3 gene in S. cerevisiae and the his5+ gene in S. pombe. Treatment of S. pombe cells with 3-AT leads to a small increase in the level of the his5 transcript, but no effect is seen on the level of the his1 transcript. This is in contrast to larger increases in transcription of amino acid biosynthetic genes, regulated by the general amino acid control, seen previously in similarly treated cultures of S. cerevisiae. These results suggest that there are likely to be some differences in the regulation of amino acid biosynthesis between these two yeasts.Sequences reported here have been deposited with GenBank as U07830 (his1) and U07831 (his5).

    Notes: The pathway for initiation of protein synthesis in eukaryotic cells has been defined and refined over the last 25 years using purified components and in vitro reconstituted systems. More recently, powerful genetic analysis in yeast has proved useful in unraveling aspects of translation inherently more difficult to address by strictly biochemical approaches. One area in particular is the functional analysis of multi-subunit protein factors, termed eukaryotic initiation factors (eIFs), that play an essential role in translation initiation. eIF-3, the most structurally complex of the eIFs, has until recently eluded this approach. The identification of the yeast GCD10 gene as the structural gene for the ζ subunit of yeast eIF-3(1) and the analysis of mutant phenotypes has opened the door to the genetic dissection of the eIF-3 protein complex.
