Functional and physical interactions of Krr1p, a Saccharomyces cerevisiae nucleolar protein.

The Krr1 protein of Saccharomyces cerevisiae is involved in processing of pre-rRNA and assembly of pre-ribosomal 40S subunits. To further investigate the function of Krr1p we constructed a conditional cold sensitive mutant krr1-21, and isolated seven genes from Schizosaccharomyces pombe whose products suppressed the cold sensitive phenotype of krr1-21 cells. Among the multicopy suppressors we found genes coding for translation elongation factor EF-1α, a putative ribose methyltransferase and five genes encoding ribosomal proteins. Using the tandem affinity purification (TAP) method we identified thirteen S. cerevisiae ribosomal proteins interacting with Krr1p. Taken together, these results indicate that Krr1p interacts functionally as well as physically with ribosomal proteins. Northern blot analysis revealed that changes in the level of krr1-21 mRNA were accompanied by similar changes in the level of mRNAs of genes encoding ribosomal proteins. Thus, Krr1p and the genes encoding ribosomal proteins it interacts with seem to be coordinately regulated at the level of transcription.
