High impact information on Rlc1

  • Rlc1p is important for cytokinesis at all growth temperatures and is essential for this process at lower temperatures [1].
  • Interestingly, all deleterious phenotypes associated with the loss of Rlc1p function are suppressed by deletion of the RLC binding site on Myo2p [1].
  • In addition, a third gene termed Rlc1, is found at a very close proximity downstream to Rlb1 [2].
  • The expression of Rlc1 during embryogenesis is similar, but not identical, to the expression pattern detected for Ras1 [2].
