L000002107, YNL309W
Protein with role in regulation of MBF-specific transcription at Start; phosphorylated by Cln-Cdc28p kinases in vitro; unphosphorylated form binds Swi6p, which is required for Stb1p function; expression is cell-cycle regulated; STB1 has a paralog, YOL131W, that arose from the whole genome duplication
Saccharomyces cerevisiae (S288c)


CNC1, GIG3, NUT9, RYE2, SRB11, UME3, CycC, L000002796, YNL025C
Cyclin-like component of the RNA polymerase II holoenzyme; involved in phosphorylation of the RNA polymerase II C-terminal domain; forms a kinase-cyclin pair in the RNAPII holoenzyme with Ssn3p; required for both entry into and execution of the meiotic program; involved in glucose repression and telomere maintenance; cyclin homolog 35% identical to human cyclin C
Saccharomyces cerevisiae (S288c)

Negative Genetic

Mutations/deletions in separate genes, each of which alone causes a minimal phenotype, but when combined in the same cell results in a more severe fitness defect or lethality under a given condition. This term is reserved for high or low throughput studies with scores.

Although cellular behaviors are dynamic, the networks that govern these behaviors have been mapped primarily as static snapshots. Using an approach called differential epistasis mapping, we have discovered widespread changes in genetic interaction among yeast kinases, phosphatases, and transcription factors as the cell responds to DNA damage. Differential interactions uncover many gene functions that go undetected in static conditions. They ... [more]

Ontology Terms

  • phenotype: colony size (APO:0000063)

Additional Notes

  • An Epistatic MiniArray Profile (E-MAP) approach was used to quantitatively score genetic interactions based on fitness defects estimated from the colony size of double versus single mutants in MMS-treated conditions. Genetic interactions were considered significant if they had an S score >=2.0 for positive interactions (epistatic or suppressor interactions) and S score <=2.5 for negative interactions (synthetic sick/lethal interactions).
