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.


The TOR and EGO protein complexes orchestrate microautophagy in yeast.

The rapamycin-sensitive TOR signaling pathway in Saccharomyces cerevisiae positively controls cell growth in response to nutrient availability. Accordingly, TOR depletion or rapamycin treatment causes regulated entry of cells into a quiescent growth phase. Although this process has been elucidated in considerable detail, the transition from quiescence back to proliferation is poorly understood. Here, we describe the identification of a conserved ...
