The OS-9 gene maps to a region (q13-15) of chromosome 12 that is highly amplified in human osteosarcomas and encodes a protein of unknown function. Here we have characterized a homolog designated as YOS9 (YDR057w) from Saccharomyces cerevisiae. The yeast protein (Yos9) is a membrane-associated glycoprotein that localizes to the endoplasmic reticulum (ER). YOS9 interacts genetically with genes involved in ER-Golgi transport, particularly SEC34, whose temperature-sensitive mutant is rescued by… CONTINUE READING
