The 'scavenger' m7GpppX pyrophosphatase activity of Dcs1 modulates nutrient-induced responses in yeast.


Dcs1, the m7GpppX pyrophosphatase of Saccharomyces cerevisiae, has been reported to 'scavenge' capped 5' end fragments generated by 3'-->5' mRNA degradation. We now show that the absence of Dcs1, and the closely related Dcs2 protein, compromises cellular responses to glucose-deprivation stress as well as to step changes in glucose availability. Dcs1 and… (More)
