    b>Ecm10p was initially identified as a cell wall synthesis-related gene product [Genetics 147 (1997) 435] and also reported as a mitochondrial protein which was partially capable of compensating the phenotypic defect by SSC1 gene mutation [..

    ..In conclusion, our results suggest that interdomain communication makes Ssc1 prone to aggregation. Hep1 counteracts aggregation by binding to this aggregation-prone conformer. ..

    ..Deletion of ecm10 leads to synthetic growth defects with ssc1 mutations at low temperature. Our data suggest an overlapping function of Ecm10 and Ssc1. ..
