Abstract

Byr3 was selected as a multicopy suppressor of the sporulation defects of diploid Schizosaccharomyces pombe cells that lack ras1. Like cells mutant at byr1 and byr2, two genes that encode putative protein kinases and that in multiple copies are also suppressors of the sporulation defects of ras1 null diploid cells, cells mutant at byr3 are viable but defective in conjugation. Nucleic acid sequence indicates byr3 has the capacity to encode a protein with seven zinc finger binding domains, similar in structure to the cellular nucleic acid binding protein (CNBP), a human protein that was identified on the basis of its ability to bind DNA. Expression of CNBP in yeast can partially suppress conjugation defects of cells lacking byr3.
