Snoek IS, et al. (2010) Involvement of Snf7p and Rim101p in the transcriptional regulation of TIR1 and other anaerobically upregulated genes in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. FEMS Yeast Res 10(4):367-84
Abstract: Abstract Despite the scientific and applied interest in the anaerobic metabolism of Saccharomyces cerevisiae, not all genes whose transcription is upregulated under anaerobic conditions have yet been linked to known transcription factors. Experiments with a reporter construct in which the promoter of the anaerobically upregulated TIR1 gene was fused to lacZ revealed a loss of anaerobic upregulation in an snf7Delta mutant. Anaerobic upregulation was restored by expression of a truncated allele of RIM101 that encodes for a constitutively active Rim101p. Analysis of lacZ expression in several deletion mutants confirmed that the effect of Snf7p on anaerobic upregulation of TIR1 involved Rim101p. Further studies with deletion mutants in NRG1, NRG2 and SMP1, which were previously shown to be regulated by Rim101p, could not totally elucidate the TIR1 regulation, suggesting the involvement of a more complex regulation network. However, the aerobic repression mechanism of TIR1 involved the general repressor Ssn6p-Tup1p. Transcriptome analysis in anaerobic chemostat cultures revealed that 26 additional genes exhibited an Snf7p/Rim101p-dependent anaerobic upregulation, among which, besides TIR1, are four other anaerobic genes SML1, MUC1, AAC3 and YBR300C. These results provide new evidence on the implication of the Rim101p cascade in the transcriptional regulation of anaerobic metabolism in S. cerevisiae.
