The yeast nuclear gene YME1 was one of six genes recently identified in a screen for mutations that elevate the rate at which DNA escapes from mitochondria and migrates to the nucleus. yme1 mutations, including a deletion, cause four known recessive phenotypes: an elevation in the rate at which copies of TRP1 and ARS1, integrated into the mitochondrial genome, escape to the nucleus; a heat-sensitive respiratory-growth defect; a cold-sensitive growth defect on rich glucose medium; and synthetic… CONTINUE READING
