Golgins are Golgi-localized proteins present in all molecularly characterized eukaryotes that function in Golgi transport and maintenance of Golgi structure. Some peripheral membrane Golgins, including the yeast Imh1 protein, contain the recently described GRIP domain that can independently mediate Golgi localization by an unknown mechanism. To identify(More)
Rab GTPases are crucial regulators of organelle biogenesis, maintenance, and transport. Multiple Rabs are expressed in all cells, and each is localized to a distinct set of organelles, but little is known regarding the mechanisms by which Rabs are targeted to their resident organelles. Integral membrane proteins have been postulated to serve as receptors(More)
Meiotic development (sporulation) in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae is induced by nutritional deprivation. Smk1 is a meiosis-specific MAP kinase homolog that controls spore morphogenesis after the meiotic divisions have taken place. In this study, recessive mutants that suppress the sporulation defect of a smk1-2 temperature-sensitive hypomorph were(More)
