Is MEC1 essential for viability or not?

Dear Wenyi,

I am not working on MEC1 but did you check the Saccharomyces genome
database? (http://genome-www4.stanford.edu/cgi-bin/SGD/locus.pl?locus=mec1)
They say that the null mutant is inviable but overproduction of Rad53p
rescues some mec1 alleles. Do you have reason to doubt this?

Best wishes

Matthias
