Dubacq C, et al. (2002) Sgt1p contributes to cyclic AMP pathway activity and physically interacts with the adenylyl cyclase Cyr1p/Cdc35p in budding yeast. Eukaryot Cell 1(4):568-82
Abstract: Sgt1p is a highly conserved eucaryotic protein that is required for both SCF (Skp1p/Cdc53p-Cullin-F-box)-mediated ubiquitination and kinetochore function in yeast. We show here that Sgtlp is also involved in the cyclic AMP (cAMP) pathway in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. SGT1 is an allele-specific suppressor of cdc35-1, a thermosensitive mutation in the leucine-rich repeat domain of the adenylyl cyclase Cyrlp/Cdc35p. We demonstrate that Sgt1p and Cyrlp/Cdc35p physically interact and that the activity of the cAMP pathway is affected in an sgt1 conditional mutant. Sequence analysis suggests that Sgtlp has features of a cochaperone. Thus, Sgt1p is a novel activator of adenylyl cyclase in S. cerevisiae and may function in the assembly or the conformational activation of specific multiprotein complexes.
