END6, FUS7, SPE161, amphiphysin-like protein RVS161, L000001788, YCR009C
Amphiphysin-like lipid raft protein; interacts with Rvs167p and regulates polarization of the actin cytoskeleton, endocytosis, cell polarity, cell fusion and viability following starvation or osmotic stress
Saccharomyces cerevisiae (S288c)


pheromone-regulated DUP240 family protein PRM9, YAR031W
Pheromone-regulated protein; contains 3 predicted transmembrane segments and an FF sequence, a motif involved in COPII binding; member of DUP240 gene family; PRM9 has a paralog, PRM8, that arose from a segmental duplication

Phenotypic Enhancement

A genetic interaction is inferred when mutation or overexpression of one gene results in enhancement of any phenotype (other than lethality/growth defect) associated with mutation or over expression of another gene.


Characterization of the yeast amphiphysins Rvs161p and Rvs167p reveals roles for the Rvs heterodimer in vivo.

Friesen H, Humphries C, Ho Y, Schub O, Colwill K, Andrews B

We have used comprehensive synthetic lethal screens and biochemical assays to examine the biological role of the yeast amphiphysin homologues Rvs161p and Rvs167p, two proteins that play a role in regulation of the actin cytoskeleton, endocytosis, and sporulation. We found that unlike some forms of amphiphysin, Rvs161p-Rvs167p acts as an obligate heterodimer during vegetative growth and neither Rvs161p nor Rvs167p ... [more]
