Abstract: In fission yeast, nutrient starvation induces physiological, biochemical, and morphological changes that enable survival. Collectively these changes are referred to as stationary phase. We have used a green fluorescent protein random insertional mutagenesis system to isolate two novel stress-response proteins required in stationary phase. Ish1 is a nuclear envelope protein that is present throughout the cell cycle and whose expression is increased in response to stresses such as glucose and nitrogen starvatio…
