    ..suppressor is the previously reported gene taf72(+), whereas the other is a previously unidentified gene named taf73(+). We show that the taf73(+) gene, like taf72(+), is essential for cell viability...

    ..Taken together, we propose that Tfg3 is involved in transcriptional regulation under stress conditions, in particular, at high temperatures. ..

    ..These results indicate that the C-terminal region of spTAF72, which largely consists of WD repeats, interacts with spTAF50 in the TFIID and SAGA-like complexes, suggesting a role for the WD repeat domain in the interaction between TAFs. ..
