From: Spore germination in Saccharomyces cerevisiae: global gene expression patterns and cell cycle landmarks

Gene Description
Genes expressed early in germination (genes 1-13 in Figure 10)  
YBL009W Protein of unknown function
RDH54 Protein required for mitotic diploid-specific recombination and repair and for meiosis
HCM1 Dosage-dependent suppressor of cmd1 and member of the forkhead family of DNA-binding proteins
SHO1 Osmosensor in the HOG1 MAP kinase, high-osmolarity signal transduction pathway, has an SH3 domain
YGR151C Protein of unknown function
RSR1 GTP-binding protein involved in bud site selection, member of the ras family in the ras superfamily
YKL089W Centromere protein required for normal chromosome segregation and spindle integrity
SPH1 Protein involved in polarized growth, with roles in shmoo formation and bud site selection
OGG1 DNA glycosylase, excises 7,8-dihydro-8-oxoguanine (8-OxoG) and formamidopyrimidine (Fapy) residues from DNA
BNI5 Protein of unknown function, localizes to the mother-bud neck
BNI4 Protein that may be involved in linking chitin synthase III to septins of the neck filaments
EXO1 Double-stranded DNA 5'→3' exonuclease, involved in mismatch repair and recombination
BBP1 Protein of the spindle pole body that binds to Bfr1p
Genes expressed late in germination (genes 81-98 in Figure 10)  
RFA1 DNA replication factor A, 69K subunit, binds single-stranded DNA
HTA2 Histone H2A, nearly identical to Hta1p
POL30 Proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA), required for DNA synthesis and DNA repair
MCD1 Cohesin, protein required for mitotic chromatid cohesion and chromosome condensation

RNR1 Ribonucleotide reductase (ribonucleoside-diphosphate reductase) large subunit, converts ribonucleoside diphosphate to deoxyribonucleoside diphosphate
RFA3 DNA replication factor A, 13K subunit
YLR049C Protein of unknown function
TOS4 Protein of unknown function
YOX1 Protein with a homeodomain that binds tRNA-Leu gene
CTF18 Protein required for accurate chromosome transmission in mitosis and maintenance of normal telomere length homolog of Rfc1p, Rfc2p, Rfc3p, Rfc4p, and Rfc5p

YNR009W Protein of unknown function
CSI2 Protein involved in chitin synthesis
MSH2 Component with Msh3p and Msh6p of DNA mismatch binding factor, involved in repair of single base mismatches and short insertions/deletions
CDC21 Thymidylate synthase, catalyzes the reductive methylation of dUMP by 5,10-methylene-5,6,7,8-tetrahydrofolate to produce dTMP and 7,8-dihydrofolate
HHO1 Histone H1
