In meiosis, a single round of DNA replication is followed by two consecutive rounds of chromosome segregation, called meiosis I and II. Disjunction of maternal from paternal centromeres during meiosis I depends on the attachment of sister kinetochores to microtubules emanating from the same pole. In budding yeast, monopolar attachment requires recruitment(More)
The yeast protein Rad23 belongs to a diverse family of proteins that contain an amino-terminal ubiquitin-like (UBL) domain. This domain mediates the binding of Rad23 to proteasomes, which in turn promotes DNA repair and modulates protein degradation, possibly by delivering ubiquitinylated cargo to proteasomes. Here we show that Rad23 binds proteasomes by(More)
Cohesion established between sister chromatids during pre-meiotic DNA replication mediates two rounds of chromosome segregation. The first division is preceded by an extended prophase wherein homologous chromosomes undergo recombination. The persistence of cohesion during prophase is essential for recombination and both meiotic divisions. Here we show that(More)
The anaphase-promoting complex (APC/C) is a large ubiquitin-protein ligase which controls progression through anaphase by triggering the degradation of cell cycle regulators such as securin and B-type cyclins. The APC/C is an unusually complex ligase containing at least 10 different, evolutionarily conserved components. In contrast to APC/C's role in cell(More)
