    ..Instead, by genetic screening, we identified three genes, TOF2, CSM1, and LRS4, required both for condensin recruitment to the RFB site and for assuring the segregation of rDNA ..

    ..Cdc14 and Net1 are part of a larger nucleolar-protein network, which also contains the Net1-related protein Tof2. Tof2 contributes to the transcriptional silencing of rDNA regions, but the precise cellular and molecular ..

    ..We show further that long-range Fob1-mediated Ter-Ter interactions in trans are downregulated by Sir2. These regulatory mechanisms control intrachromatid recombination and the replicative life span (RLS). ..

    ..Mutations in the CIP-box motifs of the Dna2 nuclease or the rDNA-associated protein Tof2 do not perturb DNA synthesis genome-wide, but instead lead to a dramatic shortening of chromosome 12 that contains ..

    ..the same Csm1 point-mutations affect rDNA silencing, probably by disrupting binding to the rDNA-associated protein Tof2. We propose that Csm1/Lrs4 functions as a molecular clamp, crosslinking kinetochore components to enforce sister ..
