High impact information on YUR1

  • We have carried out a functional analysis of Ktr1p, Ktr2p, and Yur1p [1].
  • A cluster of six genes within 10 kb (YUR1, TIF2, two new ORFs, an RSP25 homologue and MRS3) have homologues arranged similarly within 28.5 kb on the right arm of chromosome XI [2].

Biological context of YUR1

  • Examination of the electrophoretic mobility of the N-linked modified protein invertase in null mutant strains indicates that Ktr1p, Ktr2p, and Yur1p are involved in N-linked glycosylation, possibly as redundant enzymes [1].
  • We identified two other genes, YUR1 on chromosome 10, and KTR1 on chromosome 15, whose predicted products share 36% identity with Kre2p over more than 300 amino acid residues [3].
