Abstract


The Saccharomyces cerevisiae Yvh1, a dual-specificity protein phosphatase involved in glycogen accumulation and sporulation, is required for normal vegetative growth. To further elucidate the role of Yvh1, we generated dominant mutants suppressing the slow growth caused by YVH1 disruption. One of the mutant alleles, designated as SVH1-1 (suppressor of ?yvh1 deletion), was identical to MRT4 (mRNA turnover) that contained a single-base substitution causing an amino acid change from Gly(68) to Asp. Mrt4(G68D) restored the deficiencies in growth and rRNA biogenesis that occurs in absence of Yvh1. Here, we report that the interaction between Mrt4 and Yvh1 is also essential for normal glycogen accumulation and mRNA decay as well as the induction of sporulation genes IME2, SPO13 and HOP1. The Mrt4(G68D) could restore the plethora of phenotypes we observed in absence of Yvh1. We found that Yvh1 is not essential for wild-type induction of the transcriptional regulator of these genes, IME1, suggesting that either translation or post-translational modification to activate Ime1 has been compromised. Since a defect in ribosome biogenesis in general can be related to other various defects, the ribosome biogenesis defect caused by absence of Yvh1 might be an indirect cause of observed phenotypes.
