END5, MDP2, YLR337W, L000001055, L000002481, YLR337C
Verprolin, proline-rich actin-associated protein; involved in cytoskeletal organization and cytokinesis; promotes actin nucleation and endocytosis; related to mammalian Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome protein (WASP)-interacting protein (WIP)
Saccharomyces cerevisiae (S288c)


aminophospholipid translocase regulatory protein CDC50, L000004326, YCR094W
Endosomal protein that interacts with phospholipid flippase Drs2p; interaction with Cdc50p is essential for Drs2p catalytic activity; mutations affect cell polarity and polarized growth; similar to Lem3p; CDC50 has a paralog, YNR048W, that arose from the whole genome duplication

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.


Cdc50p, a protein required for polarized growth, associates with the Drs2p P-type ATPase implicated in phospholipid translocation in Saccharomyces cerevisiae.

Cdc50p, a transmembrane protein localized to the late endosome, is required for polarized cell growth in yeast. Genetic studies suggest that CDC50 performs a function similar to DRS2, which encodes a P-type ATPase of the aminophospholipid translocase (APT) subfamily. At low temperatures, drs2Delta mutant cells exhibited depolarization of cortical actin patches and mislocalization of polarity regulators, such as Bni1p and ... [more]

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.
