The NPS1/STH1 gene encodes a nuclear protein essential for the progression of G2/M phase in Saccharomyces cerevisiae . Nps1p shares homology to Snf2/Swi2p, a subunit of a protein complex known as the SNF/SWI complex. Recently, Nps1p was found to be a component of a protein complex termed RSC (3) essential for mitotic growth, whereas its function is unknown.(More)
Although transcriptional factors are known to play important roles in synaptic plasticity, their role in olfactory adaptation has not been studied well. Here we report that Ce-TBX-2, the TBX2/TBX3 transcriptional factor homologue of the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans, is involved in olfactory adaptation. Two missense hypomorphic mutations in this gene(More)
RSC (Remodel the Structure of Chromatin) is an ATP-dependent chromatin remodeling complex essential for the growth of Saccharomyces cerevisiae. RSC exists as two distinct isoforms that share core subunits including the ATPase subunit Nps1/Sth1 but contain either Rsc1or Rsc2. Using the synthetic genetic array (SGA) of the non-essential null mutation method,(More)
The uncapping of telomeres induces a DNA damage response. In Schizosaccharomyces pombe, deletion of pot1+ causes telomere uncapping and rapid telomere resection, resulting in chromosome fusion. Using the nmt-pot1-aid strain, we previously reported that Pot1 shut-off causes telomere loss and chromosome fusion in S. pombe. However, the factors responsible for(More)
