Abstract


ICR-induced frameshift mutations at the his4 locus in Saccharomyces cerevisiae have been classified into several groups on the basis of their reversion and suppression properties. One group of externally suppressible his4 mutations, designated Group II, have been shown to contain +1 G:C insertions in glycine codons and are suppressed by any one of five suppressor mutations described previously (SUF1, SUF3, SUF4, SUF5, and SUF6). The suppressor genes are believed to encode glycine tRNAs containing four base anticodons.--An analysis of spontaneous co-revertants of the Group II frameshift mutation his4-206 and leu2-3 has revealed the existence of eleven new Group II-specific suppressor genes (SUF15 through SUF25). The locations of the new suppressor loci on the yeast genetic map have been determined.--By comparing the ability or inability of Group II-specific suppressors mapping at 16 different Group II his4 mutations, two subclasses of suppressors have been defined. One subclass suppresses his4-38 and his4-519, which contain the altered four base mRNA codons 5'-GGGU-3' and 5'-GGGG-3', respectively. The other subclass suppresses his4-38, but fails to suppress his4-519. The mechanism of tRNA-mediated frameshift suppression and the molecular basis for this division of the suppressors into two subclasses is discussed.
