RVS161

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)
PREY

FIG2

L000003312, YCR089W
Cell wall adhesin, expressed specifically during mating; may be involved in maintenance of cell wall integrity during mating; FIG2 has a paralog, AGA1, that arose from the whole genome duplication
Saccharomyces cerevisiae (S288c)

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]
