Smc5/6 in the rDNA modulates lifespan independently of Fob1​.

ABSTRACT: The ribosomal DNA (rDNA) in Saccharomyces cerevisiae is in one tandem repeat array on Chromosome XII. Two regions within each repetitive element, called intergenic spacer 1 (IGS1) and IGS2, are important for organizing the rDNA within the nucleolus. The Smc5/6 complex localizes to IGS1 and IGS2. We show that Smc5/6 has a function in the rDNA beyond its role in homologous recombination (HR) at the replication fork barrier (RFB) located in IGS1. Fob1 is required for optimal binding of Smc5/6 at IGS1 whereas the canonical silencing factor Sir2 is required for its optimal binding at IGS2, independently of Fob1. Through interdependent interactions, Smc5/6 stabilizes Sir2 and Cohibin at both IGS and its recovery at IGS2 is important for nucleolar compaction and transcriptional silencing, which in turn supports rDNA stability and lifespan.
