Functions of fission yeast orp2 in DNA replication and checkpoint control.

Abstract

orp2 is an essential gene of the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe with 22% identity to budding yeast ORC2. We isolated temperature-sensitive alleles of orp2 using a novel plasmid shuffle based on selection against thymidine kinase. Cells bearing the temperature-sensitive allele orp2-2 fail to complete DNA replication at a restrictive temperature and… (More)
