CVT3, CVT9, autophagy protein ATG11, L000004760, L000004756, S000029130, YPR049C
Adapter protein for pexophagy and the Cvt targeting pathway; directs receptor-bound cargo to the phagophore assembly site (PAS) for packaging into vesicles; required for recruiting other proteins to the PAS; recruits Dnm1p to facilitate fission of mitochondria that are destined for removal by mitophagy
Saccharomyces cerevisiae (S288c)


DRR1, phosphatidylinositol kinase-related protein kinase TOR1, L000002322, YJR066W
PIK-related protein kinase and rapamycin target; subunit of TORC1, a complex that controls growth in response to nutrients by regulating translation, transcription, ribosome biogenesis, nutrient transport and autophagy; involved in meiosis; TOR1 has a paralog, TOR2, that arose from the whole genome duplication
Saccharomyces cerevisiae (S288c)

Phenotypic Suppression

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


Bidirectional regulation between TORC1 and autophagy in Saccharomyces cerevisiae.

Shin CS, Huh WK

It has been reported in various model organisms that autophagy and the target of rapamycin complex 1 (TORC1) signaling are strongly involved in eukaryotic cell aging and decreasing TORC1 activity extends longevity by an autophagy-dependent mechanism. Thus, to expand our knowledge of the regulation of eukaryotic cell aging, it is important to understand the relationship between TORC1 signaling and autophagy. ... [more]
