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.


Replication Fork Collapse and Genome Instability in dCMP Deaminase Mutant.

Sanchez A, Sharma S, Rozenzhak S, Roguev A, Krogan NJ, Chabes A, Russell P

Ribonucleotide reductase (RNR) and deoxycytidylate deaminase (dCMP deaminase) are pivotal allosteric enzymes required to maintain adequate pools of deoxyribonucleoside triphosphates (dNTPs) for DNA synthesis and repair. Whereas RNR inhibition slows DNA replication and activates checkpoint responses, the effect of dCMP deaminase deficiency is largely unknown. Here, we report that deleting the Schizosaccharomyces pombe dcd1(+) dCMP deaminase gene (SPBC2G2.13c) increases dCTP ... [more]
