High impact information on Pros26

  • Identification of an essential gene, l(3)73Ai, with a dominant temperature-sensitive lethal allele, encoding a Drosophila proteasome subunit [1].
  • Two dominant temperature-sensitive (DTS) lethal mutants of Drosophila melanogaster are Pros26(1) and Prosbeta2(1), previously known as DTS5 and DTS7 [2].
  • In an effort to isolate additional proteasome-related mutants a screen for dominant suppressors of Pros26(1) was carried out, resulting in the identification of Pros25(SuDTS) [originally called Su(DTS)], a missense mutation in the gene encoding the 20S proteasome alpha2 subunit [2].

Biological context of Pros26

  • At nonpermissive temperature (29 degrees C), heterozygotes (DTS5/+ and DTS7/+) develop normally until metamorphosis; pupae fail to mature and die before eclosion [3].

Associations of Pros26 with chemical compounds

  • Two dominant temperature-sensitive (DTS) Drosophila mutants are missense mutations of proteasome genes encoding beta-type subunits beta6/C5 (DTS5) and beta2/Z (DTS7) [3].
