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.

Schizosaccharomyces pombe cells lacking the amino-terminal catalytic domains of DNA polymerase epsilon are viable but require the DNA damage checkpoint control.

Feng W, D'Urso G

In Schizosaccharomyces pombe, the catalytic subunit of DNA polymerase epsilon (Pol epsilon) is encoded by cdc20(+) and is essential for chromosomal DNA replication. Here we demonstrate that the N-terminal half of Pol epsilon that includes the highly conserved polymerase and exonuclease domains is dispensable for cell viability, similar to observations made with regard to Saccharomyces cerevisiae. However, unlike budding yeast, ... [more]
