Localization:  MCD1 localization details
  • cytoplasm
  • nucleus
  • expression is cell cycle regulated | PUBMED
  • protein level peaks in S phase and decreases in G2/M phase | PUBMED
  • protein is absent in early G1, accumulates during S, G2 and metaphase and declines in anaphase | PUBMED
  • change in protein levels is independent of APC complex | PUBMED
  • SCC1 means Sister Chromatid Cohesion | PUBMED
  • potential PEST sequences in central region | PUBMED
Phenotypes:  Disruption: MCD1 details
  • lethal
  • null mutant spores do germinate, but not grow | PUBMED
  • mutants show mitotic defect | PUBMED
  • mutants loose chromosomes at high frequency and are capable of separating sister chromatids in absence of APC function | PUBMED
  • mutants show premature separation of sister chromatids | PUBMED
  • mutants show delayed cytokinesis | PUBMED
  • sister chromatid separation occurs in mcd1 mutants prior to APC mediated Pds1p proteolysis | PUBMED
  • rhc21-sk16 ts mutant shows increased percentage of large budded cells at 36C | PUBMED
  • most of the large-budded cells show aberrant nuclear structures, such as unequally extended nuclear DNA with incompletely elongated spindles across the mother-daughter neck or only in a mother cell | PUBMED
  • rhc21-sk16 ts mutant show increased minichromosome instability, even at 25C | PUBMED
  • rhc21-sk16 ts mutant is nocodazole sensitive, but only the growing cells | PUBMED
  • rhc21-sk16 ts mutants show no replication defect | PUBMED
  • rhc21-sk16 ts mutants do not undergo cytokinesis | PUBMED
  • rhc21-sk16 ts mutants are sensitive to UV radiation and gamma-rays | PUBMED
