OrganismSaccharomyces cerevisiae (replicative)
Aging PhenotypeNo effect on life-span
Allele TypeDeletion
StrainPSY316, W303R
DescriptionHomolog of LAG1(Jiang et al., 1998). Deletion has no effect on lifespan in strains W303R and PSY316 (N. Bishop, G. Liszt, and L. Guarente, unpublished).
Gene FunctionUnknown.
Other PhenotypesNull mutant has no obvious growth defect (Barz and Walter, 1999). Mutation of LAG1 is synthetically lethal with mutation of LAC1 (Jiang et al., 1998)
HomologsS.c. LAG1
C.e. LAG1-1, LAG1-2
H.s. LAG1
