Karst SM, et al. (2000) The yeast retrotransposons Ty1 and Ty3 require the RNA Lariat debranching enzyme, Dbr1p, for efficient accumulation of reverse transcripts. Biochem Biophys Res Commun 268(1):112-7
Abstract: A mutant screen has been initiated to identify host genes important for the replication of retrotransposons in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Two mutants were identified that undergo Ty1 and Ty3 transposition at <10% of the wild-type frequency. Both these mutants have deficiencies in the accumulation of full-length Ty1 and Ty3 cDNAs, although Ty proteins (including reverse transcriptase) accumulate at wild-type levels. The DBR1 gene, encoding the yeast debranching enzyme, complements both mutants. This suggests that Dbr1p is important for either reverse transcription or the stability of Ty cDNA, roles that have not been previously reported for this protein. The deficiency in accumulation of Ty cDNAs in dbr1 mutants is apparent when engineered Ty elements are expressed for short time periods (6-10 h) but is not apparent following long expression periods (>24 h).
