A family of genetically and structurally homologous complexes, the proteasome lid, Cop9 signalosome (CSN) and eukaryotic translation initiation factor 3, mediate different regulatory pathways. The CSN functions in numerous eukaryotes as a regulator of development and signaling, yet until now no evidence for a complex has been found in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. We identified a group of proteins, including a homolog of Csn5/Jab1 and four uncharacterized PCI components, that interact in a manner suggesting they form a complex analogous to the CSN in S. cerevisiae. These newly identified subunits play a role in adaptation to pheromone signaling. Deletants for individual subunits enhance pheromone response and increase mating efficiency. Overexpression of individual subunits or a human homolog mitigates sst2-induced pheromone sensitivity. Csi1, a novel CSN interactor, exhibits opposite phenotypes. Deletants also accumulate Cdc53/cullin in a Rub1-modified form; however, this role of the CSN appears to be distinct from that in the mating pathway.
