BEM2 / YER155C Phenotype

Phenotype annotations for a gene are curated single mutant phenotypes that require an observable (e.g., "cell shape"), a qualifier (e.g., "abnormal"), a mutant type (e.g., null), strain background, and a reference. In addition, annotations are classified as classical genetics or high-throughput (e.g., large scale survey, systematic mutation set). Whenever possible, allele information and additional details are provided.

Non-essential gene; null mutant has a competitive fitness defect, a decreased growth rate in rich media and a severe respiratory growth defect; null and conditional mutants are heat sensitive, arresting as large, multinucleate cells, with some polyploid and aploid cells; null mutant is defective in polarization of the actin cytoskeleton, with reduced endocytosis; null mutant accumulates hyperphosphorylated Cdc24p at multiple cortical sites, displays increased Cdc42p activation, a reduction in Gic2p levels and elevated Slt2p phosphoryation in the absence of stress; null mutant displays increased chitin deposition, and mitophagy; null mutant is zymolyase sensitive; null mutant is sensitive to benomyl, caffeine, cell wall agents and zymolyase as well as to some DNA replication inhibitors and damaging agents; heterozygous null mutant is haploproficient


A phenotype is defined as an observable (e.g., apoptosis) and a qualifier (e.g., increased). There may be more than one row with the same phenotype if that phenotype was observed in separate studies or in different conditions, strains, alleles, etc.

Increase the total number of rows showing on this page using the pull-down located below the table, or use the page scroll at the table's top right to browse through the table's pages; use the arrows to the right of a column header to sort by that column; filter the table using the "Filter" box at the top of the table; click on the small "i" buttons located within a cell for an annotation to view further details.

Shared Phenotypes

This diagram displays phenotype observables (purple squares) that are shared between the given gene (yellow circle) and other genes (gray circles) based on the number of phenotype observables shared (adjustable using the slider at the bottom).


Click on a gene or phenotype observable name to go to its specific page within SGD; drag any of the gene or observable objects around within the visualization for easier viewing; click “Reset” to automatically redraw the diagram; filter the genes that share observable terms with the given gene by the number of terms they share by clicking anywhere on the slider bar or dragging the tab to the desired filter number.
