Proteins are being systematically TAP-tagged in the budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, then purified and identified by mass spectrometry in order to define the stably associated components of protein complexes and weak interactions among protein complexes. In order to initiate a systems biology approach to chromatin metabolism and the transcription apparatus for RNA polymerase II, including initiation factors, elongation and termination factors, RNA processing proteins, and chromatin modifying proteins, we are combining the clustered protein purification data with synthetic genetic array (SGA) analysis and microarray analysis of gene deletion mutants. SGA analysis was used to define proteins that are genetically linked to known components of the RNA polymerase II transcriptional apparatus and chromatin modifiers, and all the resulting proteins were subsequently tagged and purified. Deletion mutants for all the non-essential proteins in this genetic and biochemical network were then assembled into a 384 gene deletion E-MAP (epistatic mini-array profile) where quantitative measures of negative (aggravating) or positive (buffering or alleviating) interactions between gene pairs were obtained. The protein complexes were then organized into putative pathways according to the similarity of their genetic interaction profiles and through buffering interactions. Proteins and protein complexes were also organized into putative pathways by clustering the gene expression profiles of a large number of gene deletion mutants. Experimental tests of the organization of pathways containing newly discovered chromatin modifying complexes and other proteins are described in this thesis.

The technology, which is called epistatic mini array profiles (E-MAP), has already been used to assign new functions to known genes, to uncover the roles of previously uncharacterized proteins E-MAPs (Epistatic Mini Array Profiles) are formed by creating and quantifying high-density genetic interaction maps. With this method, observed double mutant colony sizes are compared to those that would be expected from a distribution of typical double mutant colonies of each Title:Peptidomimetics Targeting Protein-Protein Interactions for Therapeutic Development VOLUME: 25 ISSUE: 12 Author(s):Gan Zhang, Jessica Andersen and Guillermo Gerona-Navarro* Affiliation:Department of Chemistry, Brooklyn College, Bedford Avenue, Brooklyn, NY , Department of Chemistry, Brooklyn College, Bedford Avenue, Brooklyn, NY , Department E-MAP (Epistatic Mini Array Profiles)5, 6 extends this analysis by quantitatively assessing colony size so that positive interactions can be identified as well; in those cases the double mutant is healthier than would be expected based on the growth of the two single mutants. Together, these three approaches have led to a dramatic increase in
Global analyses of protein complex assembly, composition, and location are needed to fully understand how cells coordinate diverse metabolic, mechanical, and developmental activities. The most common methods for proteome-wide analysis of protein complexes rely on affinity purification-mass spectrometry or yeast two-hybrid approaches. These methods are time consuming and are not suitable for Recently, high-throughput experimental approaches, such as epistatic mini-array profiles (E-MAPs) and genetic interaction analysis technology for E. coli (GIANT-coli), have enabled the study of epistasis on a large scale (S chuldiner et al. , ; C ollins et al. , ; T ypas et al. ). However, it remains unclear whether the 5-Aminolevulinic acid (ALA) is the universal precursor for tetrapyrrole biosynthesis and is synthesized in plants in three enzymatic steps: ligation of glutamate (Glu) to tRNAGlu by glutamyl-tRNA synthetase, reduction of activated Glu to Glusemialdehyde by glutamyl-tRNA reductase (GluTR), and transamination to ALA by Glu 1-semialdehyde aminotransferase.
