High impact information on BDF2

  • Using a yeast two-hybrid screen to identify proteins that interact with Taf67, we isolated Bromodomain factor 1 (Bdf1) and its homolog (Bdf2) [1].
  • In this report, genetic analysis indicated that the salt sensitivity of the BDF1 deletion mutant was suppressed by increased gene dosage of its homologous gene BDF2 [2].
