MMC1, L000004546, L000004250, YGL075C
Essential membrane protein localized at nuclear envelope and SPBs; required for insertion of the newly duplicated spindle pole body into the nuclear envelope; potentially phosphorylated by Cdc28p; MPS2 has a paralog, CSM4, that arose from the whole genome duplication

FG-nucleoporin NUP53, YMR153W
FG-nucleoporin component of central core of nuclear pore complex (NPC); also part of the NPC nuclear basket; contributes directly to nucleocytoplasmic transport; involved in regulation of transcription and mitosis; induces membrane tubulation, which may contribute to nuclear pore assembly; NUP53 has a paralog, ASM4, that arose from the whole genome duplication

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.


Dhh1 is a member of the SESA network.

The correct separation of chromosomes during mitosis is necessary to prevent genetic instability and aneuploidy, which are responsible for cancer and other diseases, and it depends on proper centrosome duplication. In a recent study, we found that Smy2 can suppress the essential role of Mps2 in the insertion of yeast centrosome into the nuclear membrane by interacting with Eap1, Scp160, ... [more]
