Weiss-Brummer B, et al. (1987) A mitochondrial frameshift-suppressor (+1) [corrected] of the yeast S. cerevisiae maps in the mitochondrial 15S rRNA locus. Curr Genet 11(4):295-301
Abstract: The first case of a +1 "extrageneic" frameshift suppressor (MF1), mapping in the yeast mitochondrial 15S rRNA gene is reported. The suppressor was identified by genetic analyses in a leaky mitochondrial oxil frameshift mutant and the respective wild-type strain 777-3A of the yeast S. cerevisiae. This is in accordance with the finding that all mitochondrial frameshift mutants isolated from this strain tend to be leaky to a variable degree. MF1 does not suppress known nonsense mutations created by a direct basepair exchange in strain 777-3A. These mutants exhibit a non-leaky phenotype (Weiss-Brummer et al. 1984).
