The world is facing a global pandemic of COVID-19 caused by the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus. Here we describe a collection of codon-optimized coding sequences for SARS-CoV-2 cloned into Gateway-compatible entry vectors, which enable rapid transfer into a variety of expression and tagging vectors. The collection is freely available. We hope that widespread availability of this SARS-CoV-2 resource will enable many subsequent molecular studies to better understand the viral life cycle and how to block it.

Tuberous sclerosis complex is an autosomal dominant disorder characterized by benign tumors arising from the abnormal activation of mTOR signaling in cells lacking TSC1 (hamartin) or TSC2 (tuberin) activity. To expand the genetic framework surrounding this group of growth regulators, we utilized the model eukaryote Schizosaccharomyces pombe to uncover and characterize genes that buffer the phenotypic effects of mutations in the orthologous tsc1 or tsc2 loci. Our study identified two genes: fft3 (encoding a DNA helicase) and ypa1 (encoding a peptidyle-prolyl cis/trans isomerase). While the deletion of fft3 or ypa1 has little effect in wild-type fission yeast cells, their loss in tsc1Δ or tsc2Δ backgrounds results in severe growth inhibition. These data suggest that the inhibition of Ypa1p or Fft3p might represent an 'Achilles' heel' of cells defective in hamartin/tuberin function. Furthermore, we demonstrate that the interaction between tsc1/tsc2 and ypa1 can be rescued through treatment with the mTOR inhibitor, torin-1, and that ypa1Δ cells are resistant to the glycolytic inhibitor, 2-deoxyglucose. This identifies ypa1 as a novel upstream regulator of mTOR and suggests that the effects of ypa1 loss, together with mTOR activation, combine to result in a cellular maladaptation in energy metabolism that is profoundly inhibitory to growth.
