Abstract

Ankyrin (ANK) repeats were first found in the Swi6 transcription factor of Saccharomyces cerevisiae and since then were identified in many proteins of eukaryotes and prokaryotes. These repeats are thought to serve as protein association domains. In Swi6, ANK repeats affect DNA binding of both the Swi4/Swi6 and Mbp1/Swi6 complexes. We have previously described generation of random mutations within the ANK repeats of Swi6 that render the protein temperature sensitive in its ability to activate HO transcription. Two of these SWI6 mutants were used in a screen for high copy suppressors of this phenotype. We found that MSN1, which encodes a transcriptional activator, and NHP6A, which encodes an HMG-like protein, are able to suppress defective Swi6 function. Both of these gene products are involved in HO transcription, and Nhp6A may also be involved in CLN1 transcription. Moreover, because overexpression of NHP6A can suppress caffeine sensitivity of one of the SWI6 ANK mutants, swi6-405, other SWI6-dependent genes may also be affected by Nhp6A. We hypothesize that Nhp6A and Msn1 modulate Swi6-dependent gene transcription indirectly, through effects on chromatin structure or other transcription factors, because we have not been able to demonstrate that either Msn1 or Nhp6A interact with the Swi4/Swi6 complex.
