High impact information on RTT101

  • Whereas null mutants of CUL3 appear normal, yeast cells lacking CUL8 have a slower growth rate and are delayed in their progress through anaphase [1].
  • Deletion of the RAD9 gene suppressed the anaphase delay phenotype of cul8delta, suggesting that loss of Cul8 function may compromise genomic integrity [1].
  • A role for Saccharomyces cerevisiae Cul8 ubiquitin ligase in proper anaphase progression [1].
  • These results indicate that in addition to the anaphase promoting complex, mitotic progression may involve another E3 ubiquitin ligase mediated by Cul8 protein [1].
  • Mutations in RTT101 and NUT2 dramatically stimulated Ty1 integration upstream of tRNA genes [2].
