Genomic instability is related to a wide-range of human diseases. Here, we show that mitochondrial iron–sulfur cluster biosynthesis is important for the maintenance of nuclear genome stability in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Cells lacking the mitochondrial chaperone Zim17 (Tim15/Hep1), a component of the iron–sulfur biosynthesis machinery, have limited respiration activity, mimic the metabolic response to iron starvation and suffer a dramatic increase in nuclear genome recombination. Increased oxidative damage or deficient DNA repair do not account for the observed genomic hyperrecombination. Impaired cell-cycle progression and genetic interactions of ZIM17 with components of the RFC-like complex involved in mitotic checkpoints indicate that replicative stress causes hyperrecombination in zim17Δ mutants. Furthermore, nuclear accumulation of pre-ribosomal particles in zim17Δ mutants reinforces the importance of iron–sulfur clusters in normal ribosome biosynthesis. We propose that compromised ribosome biosynthesis and cell-cycle progression are interconnected, together contributing to replicative stress and nuclear genome instability in zim17Δ mutants.

Nuclear monothiol glutaredoxins of Saccharomyces cerevisiae can function as mitochondrial glutaredoxins Molina Navarro, Maria Micaela; Bellí i Martínez, Gemma; Torre Ruiz, M. A. de la; Rodríguez Manzanaque, Maria Teresa; Herrero Perpiñán, Enrique (The American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, 2004)Glutaredoxins are thiol oxidoreductases that regulate protein redox state. In Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Grx1 and Grx2 are cytosolic dithiol glutaredoxins, whereas Grx3, Grx4, and Grx5 are monothiol glutaredoxins. ...
Predictive Reconstruction of the Mitochondrial Iron-Sulfur Cluster Assembly Metabolism. II. Role of Glutaredoxin Grx5 Alves, Rui; Herrero Perpiñán, Enrique; Sorribas Tello, Albert (John Wiley & Sons, 2004)Grx5 is a Saccharomyces cerevi- siae glutaredoxin involved in iron-sulfur cluster (FeSC) biogenesis. Previous work suggests that Grx5 is involved in regulating protein cysteine glutathio- nylation, prompting several ...
Rodríguez-Manzaneque Martínez, María Teresa; Tamarit Sumalla, Jordi; Bellí i Martínez, Gemma; Ros Salvador, Joaquim; Herrero Perpiñán, Enrique (American Society for Cell Biology, 2002)Yeast cells contain a family of three monothiol glutaredoxins: Grx3, 4, and 5. Absence of Grx5 leads to constitutive oxidative damage, exacerbating that caused by external oxidants. Phenotypic defects associated with the ...
