Membrane protein of the plasma membrane and ER; interacts specifically in vivo with the phospholipid translocase (flippase) Dnf1p; involved in translocation of phospholipids and alkylphosphocholine drugs across the plasma membrane; null mutant requires tryptophan due to mislocalization of tryptophan permease Tat2p

lipid-binding protein PIL1, YGR086C
Eisosome core component; eisosomes are large immobile cell cortex structures associated with endocytosis; detected in phosphorylated state in mitochondria; phosphorylated on Thr233 upon Pkc1p hyperactivation in a Slt2p MAPK-dependent fashion; null mutant shows activation of Pkc1p/Ypk1p stress resistance pathways; member of BAR domain family; protein increases in abundance and relocalizes from plasma membrane to cytoplasm upon DNA replication stress

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.


A Lipid E-MAP Identifies Ubx2 as a Critical Regulator of Lipid Saturation and Lipid Bilayer Stress.

Biological membranes are complex, and the mechanisms underlying their homeostasis are incompletely understood. Here, we present a quantitative genetic interaction map (E-MAP) focused on various aspects of lipid biology, including lipid metabolism, sorting, and trafficking. This E-MAP contains ∼250,000 negative and positive genetic interaction scores and identifies a molecular crosstalk of protein quality control pathways with lipid bilayer homeostasis. Ubx2p, ...

Quantitative Score

  • -3.659143 [S score]


  • High Throughput

Ontology Terms

  • phenotype: colony size (APO:0000063)

Additional Notes

  • An Epistatic MiniArray Profile (E-MAP) analysis was used to quantitatively score genetic interactions based on fitness defects estimated from the colony size of double versus single mutants. Genetic interactions were considered significant if they had an S score > 2.5 for positive interactions (suppression) and S score < -2.5 for negative interactions (synthetic sick/lethality).
