Our laboratory is interested in various aspects of nuclear cell biology. Our goal is to understand how the nucleus evolved, what regulates nuclear shape, how the nucleus interacts with other organelles and finally how all of this influences genome organization and function. Our primary model of choice is the budding yeast, Saccharomyces cerevisiae. We initiated a genetic screen in S. cerevisiae to unravel the molecular basis of compartmentalization within the nucleus and identified protein SUMOylation as a key regulator of inter-compartmental mobility for Sir2, a conserved NAD-dependent histone deacetylase. In a genome-wide screen for components that regulate nuclear shape, we have identified several key processes that influence nuclear shape and nuclear envelope organization. This includes the nucleolus, chromatin remodelers and components of the endoplasmic reticulum and vacuoles. In an effort to understand the origin of the nuclear envelope, we have taken a comparative genomics approach to identify components of the nuclear envelope that are conserved across supergroups. Interestingly, this study shows ancient origin for several components of the NE proteome. In other work we have identified a key role for transcription termination factor(s) in genome stability and are investigating how RNA metabolism affects genome organization and stability.
