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.


The Schizosaccharomyces pombe cdt2(+) gene, a target of G1-S phase-specific transcription factor complex DSC1, is required for mitotic and premeiotic DNA replication.

Yoshida SH, Al-Amodi H, Nakamura T, McInerny CJ, Shimoda C

We have defined five sev genes by genetic analysis of Schizosaccharomyces pombe mutants, which are defective in both proliferation and sporulation. sev1(+)/cdt2(+) was transcribed during the G1-S phase of the mitotic cell cycle, as well as during the premeiotic S phase. The mitotic expression of cdt2(+) was regulated by the MCB-DSC1 system. A mutant of a component of DSC1 affected ... [more]
