myosin 1, L000001222, YHR023W
Type II myosin heavy chain; required for wild-type cytokinesis and cell separation; localizes to the actomyosin ring; binds to myosin light chains Mlc1p and Mlc2p through its IQ1 and IQ2 motifs respectively
Saccharomyces cerevisiae (S288c)


Rho family guanine nucleotide exchange factor ROM2, L000003182, YLR371W
GDP/GTP exchange factor (GEF) for Rho1p and Rho2p; mutations are synthetically lethal with mutations in rom1, which also encodes a GEF; Rom2p localization to the bud surface is dependent on Ack1p; ROM2 has a paralog, ROM1, that arose from the whole genome duplication
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.


Mechanisms for concentrating Rho1 during cytokinesis.

Yoshida S, Bartolini S, Pellman D

The small GTP-binding protein, Rho1/RhoA plays a central role in cytokinetic actomyosin ring (CAR) assembly and cytokinesis. Concentration of Rho proteins at the division site is a general feature of cytokinesis, yet the mechanisms for recruiting Rho to the division site for cytokinesis remain poorly understood. We find that budding yeast utilizes two mechanisms to concentrate Rho1 at the division ... [more]
