YKU70

HDF1, NES24, KU70, L000000759, YMR284W
Subunit of the telomeric Ku complex (Yku70p-Yku80p); involved in telomere length maintenance, structure and telomere position effect; required for localization of telomerase ribonucleoprotein to nucleus via interaction with the TLC1 guide RNA; relocates to sites of double-strand cleavage to promote nonhomologous end joining during DSB repair
Saccharomyces cerevisiae (S288c)
PREY

RIF1

DNA-binding protein RIF1, L000001639, YBR275C
Protein that binds to the Rap1p C-terminus; acts synergistically with Rif2p to help control telomere length and establish telomeric silencing; contributes to resection of DNA double strand breaks (DSBs); deletion results in telomere elongation

Synthetic Rescue

A genetic interaction is inferred when mutations or deletions of one gene rescues the lethality or growth defect of a strain mutated or deleted for another gene.

Rif1 Supports the Function of the CST Complex in Yeast Telomere Capping.

Anbalagan S, Bonetti D, Lucchini G, Longhese MP

Telomere integrity in budding yeast depends on the CST (Cdc13-Stn1-Ten1) and shelterin-like (Rap1-Rif1-Rif2) complexes, which are thought to act independently from each other. Here we show that a specific functional interaction indeed exists among components of the two complexes. In particular, unlike RIF2 deletion, the lack of Rif1 is lethal for stn1ΔC cells and causes a dramatic reduction in viability ... [more]
