Abstract

The Saccharomyces cerevisiae SRK1 gene, when expressed on a low-copy shuttle vector, partially suppresses the phenotype associated with elevated levels of cyclic AMP-dependent protein kinase activity and suppresses the temperature-sensitive cell cycle arrest of the ins1 mutant. SRK1 is located on chromosome IV, 3 centimorgans from gcn2. A mutant carrying a deletion mutation in srk1 is viable. SRK1 encodes a 140-kDa protein with homology to the dis3+ protein from Schizosaccharomyces pombe. The ability of SRK1 to alleviate partially the defects caused by high levels of cyclic AMP-dependent protein kinase and the similarity of its encoded protein to dis3+ suggest that SRK1 may have a role in protein phosphatase function.
