Abstract

Eukaryotic chromosome ends have a DNA-protein complex structure termed telomere. Integrity of telomeres is essential for cell proliferation. Genome-wide screenings for telomere length maintenance genes identified several components of the transcriptional regulator, the Mediator complex. Our work provides evidence that Mediator is involved in telomere length regulation and telomere heterochromatin maintenance. Tail module of Mediator is required for telomere silencing by promoting or stabilizing Sir protein binding and spreading on telomeres. Mediator binds on telomere and may be a component of telomeric chromatin. Our study reveals a specific role of Mediator complex at the heterochromatic telomere and this function is specific to telomeres as it has no effect on the HMR locus.
