Two interacting ribosome biogenesis factors, Ebp2 and Rrs1, associate with Mps3, an essential inner nuclear membrane protein. Both are found in foci along the nuclear periphery, like Mps3, as well as in the nucleolus. Temperature-sensitive ebp2 and rrs1 mutations that compromise ribosome biogenesis displace the mutant proteins from the nuclear rim and lead(More)
Rrs1p, a ribosomal protein L11-binding protein, has an essential role in biogenesis of 60S ribosomal subunits. We obtained conditionally synthetic lethal allele with the rrs1-5 mutation and determined that the mutation is in REX1, which encodes an exonuclease. The highly conserved leucine at 305 was substituted with tryptophan in rex1-1. The rex1-1 allele(More)
We previously cloned RRP14/YKL082c, whose product exhibits two-hybrid interaction with Ebp2p, a regulatory factor of assembly of 60S ribosomal subunits. Depletion of Rrp14p results in shortage of 60S ribosomal subunits and retardation of processing from 27S pre-rRNA to 25S rRNA. Furthermore, 35S pre-rRNA synthesis appears to decline in Rrp14p-depleted(More)
