MCM2

MCM DNA helicase complex subunit MCM2, L000001038, YBL023C
Protein involved in DNA replication; component of the Mcm2-7 hexameric helicase complex that binds chromatin as a part of the pre-replicative complex; relative distribution to the nucleus increases upon DNA replication stress
Saccharomyces cerevisiae (S288c)
PREY

RAD53

LSD1, MEC2, SPK1, serine/threonine/tyrosine protein kinase RAD53, L000001573, YPL153C
DNA damage response protein kinase; required for cell-cycle arrest in response to DNA damage; activated by trans autophosphorylation when interacting with hyperphosphorylated Rad9p; also interacts with ARS1 and plays a role in initiation of DNA replication; activates the downstream kinase Dun1p; differentially senses mtDNA depletion and mitochondrial ROS; required for regulation of copper genes in response to DNA-damaging agents; relocalizes to cytosol in response to hyoxia
Saccharomyces cerevisiae (S288c)

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.

Alternative mechanisms for coordinating polymerase alpha and MCM helicase.

Lee C, Liachko I, Bouten R, Kelman Z, Tye BK

Functional coordination between DNA replication helicases and DNA polymerases at replication forks, achieved through physical linkages, has been demonstrated in prokaryotes but not in eukaryotes. In Saccharomyces cerevisiae, we showed that mutations that compromise the activity of the MCM helicase enhance the physical stability of DNA polymerase alpha in the absence of their presumed linker, Mcm10. Mcm10 is an essential ... [more]
