Genetics of nonsense suppressors in yeast

Abstract:

This thesis is a genetic study of the cytoplasmically- inherited determinant [psi] of Saccharomyces cerevisiae . [psi] is a potentiator of ochre suppression. The molecular basis of [psi] was investigated using mutagenesis as a probe. The psi+ phenotype (efficient suppression) can be mutated to psi- phenotype (loss of suppression) by ultra-violet light (UV) and nitrosoguanidine (NTG) . The UV-induced mutation was a single-hit event and the pre-mutati...
