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)
