LYS2 Lys2p

LYS2, Lys5, alpha-aminoadipate reductase
The protein encoded by this gene is similar to Saccharomyces cerevisiae LYS5, which is required for the activation of the alpha-aminoadipate dehydrogenase in the biosynthetic pathway of lysine. Yeast alpha-aminoadipate dehydrogenase converts alpha-biosynthetic-aminoadipate semialdehyde to alpha-aminoadipate. It has been suggested that defects in the human gene result in pipecolic acidemia.

Nuclear organization and transcriptional silencing in yeast.
Gasser et al., Lausanne, Switzerland. In Experientia, 1997
Elevation of the internal nuclear pools of Sir1p, Sir3p and Sir4p can relieve the lack of repression at the LYS2 locus in an additive manner, suggesting that in wild-type cells silencer function is facilitated by its juxtaposition to a pool of highly concentrated Sir proteins, such as those created by telomere clustering.
