Abstract

We have used a cloned yeast mitochondrial tRNAUCNSer gene as a probe to detect RNA species that are transcripts from this gene in wild-type Saccharomyces cerevisiae and in petite deletion mutants. In RNA from wild-type cells, the tRNA is the most prominent transcript of the gene. In RNA from deletion mutants that retain this gene but have lost other regions of mtDNA, high molecular weight transcripts containing the tRNAUCNSer sequences accumulate but tRNAUCNSer is not made. tRNAUCNSer synthesis can be restored in these mutants when they are mated to other deletion mutants that retain a different portion of the mitochondrial genome. Protein synthesis is not necessary for the restoration, and the restoration is not due to a nuclear effect or to an effect of mating alone, because strains without mtDNA are not able to restore tRNA synthesis. These results definitively demonstrate the existence of a yeast mitochondrial locus that is necessary for tRNA synthesis and, because the restoration of tRNAUCNSer synthesis appears to result from intergenic complementation, not recombination, indicate that this locus acts in trans.
