Exposure of the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae to ultraviolet (UV) light, the UV-mimetic chemical 4-nitroquinoline-1-oxide (4NQO), or gamma radiation after release from G1 arrest induced by alpha factor results in delayed resumption of the cell cycle. As is the case with G2 arrest following ionizing radiation damage [Weinert, T. A. & Hartwell, L. H. (1988)(More)
The delay of S-phase following treatment of yeast cells with DNA-damaging agents is an actively regulated response that requires functional RAD9 and RAD24 genes. An analysis of cell cycle arrest indicates the existence of (at least) two checkpoints for damaged DNA prior to S-phase; one at START (a G1 checkpoint characterized by pheromone sensitivity of(More)
Rab5 GTPases are key regulators of protein trafficking through the early stages of the endocytic pathway. The yeast Rab5 ortholog Vps21p is activated by its guanine nucleotide exchange factor Vps9p. Here we show that Vps9p binds ubiquitin and that the CUE domain is necessary and sufficient for this interaction. Vps9p ubiquitin binding is required for(More)
We have cloned a novel human cDNA, INPPL1 (GenBank Accession No. L36818), which maps to 11q23. The corresponding mRNA is 4657 nt in length and is widely expressed in both fetal and adult tissues. An open reading frame of 3441 nt encodes a putative polypeptide that shares several domains with inositol triphosphate phosphatases. Several polymorphisms have(More)
A newly characterized rad1 missense mutation (rad1-20) in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae maps to a region of the Rad1 polypeptide known to be required for Rad1-Rad10 complex formation. The UV sensitivity of the rad1-20 mutant can be partially and specifically corrected by overexpression of wild-type Rad10 protein. These results suggest that complex(More)
