RSC4

L000004026, YKR008W
Component of the RSC chromatin remodeling complex; found in close proximity to nucleosomal DNA; displaced from the surface of nucleosomal DNA after chromatin remodeling; acetylated (K25) by Gcn5p, altering replication stress tolerance; contains tandem bromodomains that recognize histone H3 acetylated on K14 (H3K14ac) by Gcn5p

Transcription coactivator; component of the ADA and SAGA transcriptional adaptor/HAT (histone acetyltransferase) complexes

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.

Acetylation of Rsc4p by Gcn5p is essential in the absence of histone H3 acetylation.

Choi JK, Grimes DE, Rowe KM, Howe LJ

Rsc4p, a subunit of the RSC chromatin-remodeling complex, is acetylated at lysine 25 by Gcn5p, a well-characterized histone acetyltransferase (HAT). Mutation of lysine 25 does not result in a significant growth defect, and therefore whether this modification is important for the function of the essential RSC complex was unknown. In a search to uncover the molecular basis for the lethality ... [more]
