    ..no detectable growth phenotypes, synergistic interactions were observed in two double mutant combinations: a yme1, yme2 double mutant failed to respire at 30 degrees and a yme4, yme6 double mutant failed to respire at all temperatures ..

    ..YNT20p is a soluble mitochondrial protein that belongs to a subfamily of putative 3'-5' exonucleases. Furthermore, conserved sequence elements in Yme2p suggest that this protein may also function as an exonuclease.
