MEC1

ESR1, RAD31, SAD3, protein kinase MEC1, L000000586, S000029404, S000007656, YBR136W
Genome integrity checkpoint protein and PI kinase superfamily member; Mec1p and Dun1p function in same pathway to regulate dNTP pools and telomere length; signal transducer required for cell cycle arrest and transcriptional responses to damaged or unreplicated DNA; facilitates replication fork progression and regulates P-body formation under replication stress; promotes interhomolog recombination by phosphorylating Hop1p; associates with shortened, dysfunctional telomeres

MRE11

NGS1, RAD58, XRS4, MRX complex nuclease subunit, L000004732, L000001149, L000004275, YMR224C
Nuclease subunit of the MRX complex with Rad50p and Xrs2p; complex functions in repair of DNA double-strand breaks and in telomere stability; Mre11p associates with Ser/Thr-rich ORFs in premeiotic phase; nuclease activity required for MRX function; widely conserved; forms nuclear foci upon DNA replication stress
Saccharomyces cerevisiae (S288c)

Synthetic Growth Defect

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

The ATP-bound conformation of the Mre11-Rad50 complex is essential for Tel1/ATM activation.

Cassani C, Vertemara J, Bassani M, Marsella A, Tisi R, Zampella G, Longhese MP

Activation of the checkpoint protein Tel1 requires the Mre11-Rad50-Xrs2 (MRX) complex, which recruits Tel1 at DNA double-strand breaks (DSBs) through direct interaction between Tel1 and Xrs2. However, in vitro Tel1 activation by MRX requires ATP binding to Rad50, suggesting a role also for the MR subcomplex in Tel1 activation. Here we describe two separation-of-functions alleles, mre11-S499P and rad50-A78T, which we ... [more]
