Abstract

We show that mutants lacking either the phosphatase activator Rrd1 or the phosphatase Pph3 are resistant to rapamycin and that double mutants exhibit a synergistic response. This phenotype could be related to an inability of the mutants to degrade RNA polymerase II, leading to transcription of critical genes that sustain growth.
