WEB2, bifuctional ATP-dependent DNA helicase/ssDNA endodeoxyribonuclease DNA2, L000003158, YHR164C
Tripartite DNA replication factor; has single-stranded DNA-dependent ATPase, ATP-dependent nuclease, and helicase activities; tracking protein for flap cleavage during Okazaki fragment maturation; involved in DNA repair and processing of meiotic DNA double strand breaks; required for normal life span; component of telomeric chromatin, with cell-cycle dependent localization; required for telomerase-dependent telomere synthesis; forms nuclear foci upon DNA replication stress
Saccharomyces cerevisiae (S288c)


EDR1, DNA topoisomerase 3, L000002321, YLR234W
DNA Topoisomerase III; conserved protein that functions in a complex with Sgs1p and Rmi1p to relax single-stranded negatively-supercoiled DNA preferentially; DNA catenation/decatenation activity stimulated by RPA and Sgs1p-Top2p-Rmi1p; involved in telomere stability and regulation of mitotic recombination
Saccharomyces cerevisiae (S288c)

Synthetic Lethality

A genetic interaction is inferred when mutations or deletions in separate genes, each of which alone causes a minimal phenotype, result in lethality when combined in the same cell under a given condition.


A network of multi-tasking proteins at the DNA replication fork preserves genome stability.

Budd ME, Tong AH, Polaczek P, Peng X, Boone C, Campbell JL

To elucidate the network that maintains high fidelity genome replication, we have introduced two conditional mutant alleles of DNA2, an essential DNA replication gene, into each of the approximately 4,700 viable yeast deletion mutants and determined the fitness of the double mutants. Fifty-six DNA2-interacting genes were identified. Clustering analysis of genomic synthetic lethality profiles of each of 43 of the ... [more]

Affinity Capture-Western

An interaction is inferred when a bait protein is affinity captured from cell extracts by either polyclonal antibody or epitope tag and the associated interaction partner identified by Western blot with a specific polyclonal antibody or second epitope tag. This category is also used if an interacting protein is visualized directly by dye stain or radioactivity. Note that this differs from any co-purification experiment involving affinity capture in that the co-purification experiment involves at least one extra purification step to get rid of potential contaminating proteins.

Negative Genetic

Mutations/deletions in separate genes, each of which alone causes a minimal phenotype, but when combined in the same cell results in a more severe fitness defect or lethality under a given condition. This term is reserved for high or low throughput studies with scores.
