We have established a one-hybrid screen that allows the in vivo localization of proteins at a functional Saccharomyces cerevisiae centromere. Applying this screen we have identified three proteins-Ctf19, Mcm21, and the product of an unspecified open reading frame that we named Okp1-as components of the budding yeast centromere. Ctf19, Mcm21, and Okp1 most likely form a protein complex that links CBF3, a protein complex directly associated with the CDE III element of the centromere DNA, with further components of the budding yeast centromere, Cbf1, Mif2, and Cse4. We demonstrate that the CDE III element is essential and sufficient to localize the established protein network to the centromere and propose that the interaction of the CDE II element with the CDE III localized protein complex facilitates a protein-DNA conformation that evokes the active centromere.
