Partitioning of the 2-μm Circle Plasmid of Saccharomyces cerevisiae
The efficient partitioning of the 2-μm plasmid of Saccharomyces cerevisiae at cell division is dependent on two plasmid-encoded proteins (Rep1p and Rep2p), together with the cis-acting locus REP3Expand

Mutations in a Partitioning Protein and Altered Chromatin Structure at the Partitioning Locus Prevent Cohesin Recruitment by the Saccharomyces cerevisiae Plasmid and Cause Plasmid Missegregation
ABSTRACT The 2μm circle is a highly persistent “selfish” DNA element resident in the Saccharomyces cerevisiae nucleus whose stability approaches that of the chromosomes. The plasmid partitioningExpand

The Drosophila l(2)35Ba/nocA gene encodes a putative Zn finger protein involved in the development of the embryonic brain and the adult ocellar structures.
The Drosophila l(2)35Ba/nocA gene is involved in the development of the adult ocelli and the embryonic head. Mutations in this gene lead to at least two distinct phenotypes. Several larva lethalExpand

The 2μm Plasmid Stability System: Analyses of the Interactions among Plasmid- and Host-Encoded Components
ABSTRACT The stable inheritance of the 2μm plasmid in a growing population of Saccharomyces cerevisiae is dependent on two plasmid-encoded proteins (Rep1p and Rep2p), together with thecis-actingExpand

A Novel Role for the Mitotic Spindle during DNA Segregation in Yeast: Promoting 2μm Plasmid-Cohesin Association
ABSTRACT The 2μm circle plasmid in Saccharomyces cerevisiae is a model for a stable, high-copy-number, extrachromosomal “selfish” DNA element. By combining a partitioning system and an amplificationExpand

The 2μm Plasmid of Saccharomyces cerevisiae
The first part of this chapter is devoted to the 2µm circle partitioning system, a critical component of the plasmid's strategy for stable maintenance in yeast populations. The second part deals withExpand
