Conference paper


Two proteins, designated ARS Binding Factors (ABF) 1 and 2, were identified several years ago as proteins that interact specifically with the yeast replication origin, ARS1 (Diffley and Stillman, 1988a). Subsequent analysis has revealed that ABF1 plays a key role in cell growth while ABF2 is involved in the maintenance of the mitochondrial genome. In this article, we summarize some of these results.
