The mutator gene DEL1 in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae causes a high rate of formation of multisite mutations that encompass the following three adjacent genes: CYC1, which determines the structure of iso-1-cytochrome c; RAD7, which controls UV sensitivity; and OSM1, which controls osomotic sensitivity. The simplest hypothesis is that these multisite(More)
Some of the deletions in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae that encompass the CYC1 gene, which determines iso-1-cytochrome c, extend into the OSM1 gene, causing inhibition of growth on hypertonic media, and into the RAD7 gene, causing sensitivity to UV light. Two deletions (cyc1--363 and cyc1--367) encompass only the CYC1 gene, two deletions (cyc1--366 and(More)
NK cells develop in the bone marrow and complete their maturation in peripheral organs, but the molecular events controlling maturation are incompletely understood. The miR-15/16 family of microRNA regulates key cellular processes and is abundantly expressed in NK cells. In this study, we identify a critical role for miR-15/16 in the normal maturation of NK(More)
The Psi(+) extrachromosomal determinant in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae suppresses certain UAA markers and increases the efficiency of suppression of UAA suppressors and certain frameshift suppressors. Although the exact nature of Psi(+) determinant is unknown, it is believed to be a self-replicating cytoplasmic factor affecting some component of the(More)
Approximately one-half of the mutants of Saccharomyces cerevisiae that are selected as resistant to methyl mercury are also found to require methionine. Eighty-four percent of these met mutations occur at the met15 locus, and the remaining 16% occur at the met2 locus. Surprisingly, the methionine-requiring mutants are recovered at a much higher frequency on(More)
Phosphatase and tensin homolog (PTEN) is a critical negative regulator of the phosphoinositide-3 kinase pathway, members of which play integral roles in natural killer (NK) cell development and function. However, the functions of PTEN in NK cell biology remain unknown. Here, we used an NK cell-specific PTEN-deletion mouse model to define the ramifications(More)
One hundred and thirty-three spontaneous and induced mutants of the met15 locus in Saccharomyces cerevisiae were characterized with respect to temperature sensitivity, osmotic remediability, interallelic complementation, and suppressibility by amber and ochre suppressors. Forty mutants are osmotic remedial; 17 of these, and no others, are also(More)
