Budding yeast Rif1 binds to replication origins and protects DNA at blocked replication forks
Despite its evolutionarily conserved function in controlling DNA replication, the chromosomal binding sites of the budding yeast Rif1 protein are not well understood. Here, we analyse genome‐wide
The role of Rif1 in telomere length regulation is separable from its role in origin firing
TLDR
It is concluded that telomeric origin firing does not cause telomere elongation, and the role of Rif1 in regulating origin firing is separable from its role in regulating telomeres length.
ChECing out Rif1 action in freely cycling cells
TLDR
This study found that Rif1’s regulatory activity at origins is best revealed by an assay that measures replication in unperturbed, freely cycling cultures, as opposed to commonly used protocols in which cells are first blocked in the G1 phase of the cell cycle by mating pheromone, then released into a synchronous S phase.
Temporal control of late replication and coordination of origin firing by self-stabilizing Rif1-PP1 hubs in Drosophila
TLDR
A model in which the spatiotemporal program of late replication in the MBT embryo is controlled by self-stabilizing Rif1-PP1 hubs, whose abrupt dispersal synchronizes firing of associated late origins is proposed.
Dynamic relocalization of replication origins by Fkh1 requires execution of DDK function and Cdc45 loading at origins
TLDR
It is determined that execution of Dbf4-dependent kinase function, including Cdc45 loading, results in dynamic relocalization of a replication origin from the nuclear periphery to the interior in G1 phase, which provides novel molecular insight into the mechanisms that govern dynamics and spatial organization of DNA replication origins and possibly other functional DNA elements.
Telomere length regulation by Rif1 protein from Hansenula polymorpha
TLDR
Functional characterization of the Rif1 homologue from methylotrophic thermotolerant budding yeast Hansenula polymorpha DL-1 is reported and it is shown that, similar to other yeast species, H.polymorpha Rif 1 suppresses telomerase-dependent telomere elongation.
Persistent acetylation of newly synthesized histones inhibits DNA replication origin activity
TLDR
The results argue that abnormal regulation of nascent chromatin structure negatively influences DNA replication initiation in cells presenting reduced Dbf4-dependent kinase activity including those experiencing replicative stress.
Rif1 regulates telomere length through conserved HEAT repeats
TLDR
It is proposed that the Rif1 HEAT repeats region represents a protein-protein binding interface that mediates telomere length regulation, which is separate from their proposed DNA-binding function.
Rif1 S-acylation mediates DNA double-strand break repair at the inner nuclear membrane
TLDR
Rif1 S-acylation facilitates the accumulation of Rif1 at DSBs, attenuation of DNA end-resection, and DSB repair by non-homologous end-joining by the DHHC family palmitoyl acyltransferase Pfa4.
Rif1 promotes association of G-quadruplex (G4) by its specific G4 binding and oligomerization activities
TLDR
A model on how Rif1 may facilitate the formation of chromatin architecture through its G4 binding and oligomerization properties is presented.

Budding Yeast Rif1 Controls Genome Integrity by Inhibiting rDNA Replication
TLDR
The data suggest that the repression of origin activation by Rif1-Glc7 is important to avoid the deleterious accumulation of stalled replication forks at the rDNA RFB, which become lethal when fork stability is compromised.
Rif1 Regulates Initiation Timing of Late Replication Origins throughout the S. cerevisiae Genome
TLDR
Analysis of replication timing by analyzing BrdU incorporation genome-wide and analysis of pfa4Δ cells, suggests that replication timing regulation by Rif1 is independent of its role in localizing telomeres to the nuclear periphery, and suggests instead that telomere sequences merely provide abundant binding sites for proteins that recruit RIF1.
Rif1 is a global regulator of timing of replication origin firing in fission yeast.
TLDR
The data demonstrate that Rif1 is a critical determinant of the origin activation program on the fission yeast chromosomes.
Rif1 controls DNA replication timing in yeast through the PP1 phosphatase Glc7.
Rif1 maintains telomeres and mediates DNA repair by encasing DNA ends
TLDR
Crystal structures for the uncharacterized and conserved ∼125-kDa N-terminal domain of Rif1 from Saccharomyces cerevisiae (Rif1-NTD) are described, revealing an α-helical fold shaped like a shepherd's crook that fully encases DNA as a head-to-tail dimer in DNA repair.
Rif1: A Conserved Regulator of DNA Replication and Repair Hijacked by Telomeres in Yeasts
TLDR
The deployment of Rif1 at telomeres in yeasts is discussed from both an evolutionary perspective and in light of its recently discovered global functions.
Rif1 and Rif2 Shape Telomere Function and Architecture through Multivalent Rap1 Interactions
Rif1 binds to G quadruplexes and suppresses replication over long distances
TLDR
It is suggested that Rif1 recognizes and binds G quadruplex–like structures at selected intergenic regions, thus generating local chromatin structures that may exert long-range suppressive effects on origin firing.
Rif1 controls DNA replication by directing Protein Phosphatase 1 to reverse Cdc7-mediated phosphorylation of the MCM complex.
TLDR
It is proposed that Rif1 (Rap1-interacting factor 1) is a novel PP1 substrate targeting subunit that counteracts DDK-mediated phosphorylation during replication, and is likely that replication control by RIF1 through PP1 is a conserved mechanism.
