All tRNAs are extensively modified, and modification deficiency often results in growth defects in the budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae and neurological or other disorders in humans. In S. cerevisiae, lack of any of several tRNA body modifications results in rapid tRNA decay (RTD) of certain mature tRNAs by the 5’-3’ exonucleases Rat1 and Xrn1. As tRNA quality control decay mechanisms are not extensively studied in other eukaryotes, we studied trm8Δ mutants in the evolutionarily distant fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe, which lack 7-methylguanosine at G46 (m7G46) of their tRNAs. We report here that S. pombe trm8Δ mutants are temperature sensitive primarily due to decay of tRNATyr(GUA) and that spontaneous mutations in the RAT1 ortholog dhp1+ restored temperature resistance and prevented tRNA decay, demonstrating conservation of the RTD pathway. We also report for the first time evidence linking the RTD and the general amino acid control (GAAC) pathways, which we show in both S. pombe and S. cerevisiae. In S. pombe trm8Δ mutants, spontaneous GAAC mutations restored temperature resistance and tRNA levels, and the trm8Δ temperature sensitivity was precisely linked to GAAC activation due to tRNATyr(GUA) decay. Similarly, in the well-studied S. cerevisiae trm8Δ trm4Δ RTD mutant, temperature sensitivity was closely linked to GAAC activation due to tRNAVal(AAC) decay; however, in S. cerevisiae, GAAC mutations increased tRNA loss and exacerbated temperature sensitivity. A similar exacerbated growth defect occurred upon GAAC mutation in S. cerevisiae trm8Δ and other single modification mutants that triggered RTD. Thus, these results demonstrate a conserved GAAC activation coincident with RTD in S. pombe and S. cerevisiae, but an opposite impact of the GAAC response in the two organisms. We speculate that the RTD pathway and its regulation of the GAAC pathway is widely conserved in eukaryotes, extending to other mutants affecting tRNA body modifications.
