APL1, arginine transporter ALP1, L000000080, YNL270C
Arginine transporter; expression is normally very low and it is unclear what conditions would induce significant expression; ALP1 has a paralog, CAN1, 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.


Multiple knockout analysis of genetic robustness in the yeast metabolic network.

Deutscher D, Meilijson I, Kupiec M, Ruppin E

Genetic robustness characterizes the constancy of the phenotype in face of heritable perturbations. Previous investigations have used comprehensive single and double gene knockouts to study gene essentiality and pairwise gene interactions in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Here we conduct an in silico multiple knockout investigation of a flux balance analysis model of the yeast's metabolic network. Cataloging gene sets that ... [more]
