Abstract: It is known that nonsense suppression efficiency in yeast is controlled both genetically and epigenetically. As many components of translation machinery are represented by phosphoproteins, it depends, in particular, on the activity of kinases and phosphatases. The Ppz1p/Hal3p complex is among them. In this complex, the Ppz1p phosphatase is a catalytic subunit and Hal3p negatively regulates its function. The aim of this work was to study mechanisms which relate the activity of Ppz1p/Hal3p complex to nonsense suppression efficiency. In this study we used a genetic approach consisting of the analysis of nonsense suppression phenotype of strains over-expressing HAL3 or PPZ1 genes and also bearing deletions or mutant alleles of genes which presumably could participate in the manifestation of these over-expressions. We have shown that Hal3p inhibits not only Ppz1p, but also the homologous phosphatase Ppz2p. Our data indicate that Ppz2p is also involved in the control of nonsense suppression efficiency. In the course of search for Ppz1p target protein, it was shown that Ppz1p dephosphorylates at least two proteins participating in translation. Moreover, Ppz1p affects nonsense suppression efficiency not only due to its phosphatase activity but also due to another mechanism triggered by its interaction with Hsp70 chaperones.FAU - Ivanov, M.
