Replication protein A (RPA) is the major single-stranded DNA-binding protein in eukaryotes, essential for DNA replication, repair, and recombination. During mitosis and meiosis in budding yeast, RPA becomes phosphorylated in reactions that require the Mec1 protein kinase, a central checkpoint regulator and homolog of human ATR. Through mass spectrometry and(More)
In Saccharomyces cerevisiae, the cellular single-stranded DNA-binding protein replication protein A (RPA) becomes phosphorylated during meiosis in two discrete reactions. The primary reaction is first observed shortly after cells enter the meiotic program and leads to phosphorylation of nearly all the detectable RPA. The secondary reaction, which requires(More)
Phosphorylation of the cellular single-stranded DNA-binding protein, replication protein A (RPA), occurs during normal mitotic cell cycle progression and also in response to genotoxic stress. In budding yeast, these reactions require the ATM homolog Mec1, a central regulator of the DNA replication and DNA damage checkpoint responses. We now demonstrate that(More)
