AAS104, ADA4, SWI9, histone acetyltransferase GCN5, KAT2, L000000684, YGR252W
Catalytic subunit of ADA and SAGA histone acetyltransferase complexes; modifies N-terminal lysines on histones H2B and H3; acetylates Rsc4p, a subunit of the RSC chromatin-remodeling complex, altering replication stress tolerance; relocalizes to the cytosol in response to hypoxia; mutant displays reduced transcription elongation in the G-less-based run-on (GLRO) assay; greater involvement in repression of RNAPII-dependent transcription than in activation

TAS1, NuA4 histone acetyltransferase complex catalytic subunit ESA1, KAT5, L000003952, YOR244W
Catalytic subunit of the histone acetyltransferase complex (NuA4); acetylates four conserved internal lysines of histone H4 N-terminal tail and can acetylate histone H2A; master regulator of cellular acetylation balance; required for cell cycle progression and transcriptional silencing at the rDNA locus and regulation of autophagy; human ortholog TIP60/KAT5 is implicated in cancer and other diseases

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.

Histone acetylation and deacetylation are among the principal mechanisms by which chromatin is regulated during transcription, DNA silencing, and DNA repair. We analyzed patterns of genetic interactions uncovered during comprehensive genome-wide analyses in yeast to probe how histone acetyltransferase (HAT) and histone deacetylase (HDAC) protein complexes interact. The genetic interaction data unveil an underappreciated role of HDACs in maintaining cellular ... [more]

Ontology Terms

  • phenotype: inviable (APO:0000112)

Additional Notes

  • High Throughput: dSLAM analysis was performed to determine genome-wide genetic interaction profiles of 38 query genes involved in histone (de)acetylation.
  • Low Throughput: Genetic interactions identified using dSLAM were validated by tetrad dissection and/or random spore analysis.
