Abstract

The inositol/choline responsive element (ICRE) functions as a UAS element mediating coordinate expression of structural genes required for yeast phospholipid biosynthesis. However, ICRE motifs could be detected upstream of various genes apparently not involved in lipid metabolism. In this work we investigated the expression pattern of selected genes containing ICRE promoter motifs, as identified by in silico analysis (ARG4, ERG20, FAR8, GPD2, RSF1, URA8, VHT1 and YEL073C). It turned out that the presence of an ICRE upstream of a gene of unknown function indeed allows to conclude for regulation by phospholipid precursors, which is mediated by activators Ino2/Ino4 and the repressor Opi1. We also demonstrated in vitro binding of Ino2/Ino4 heterodimers to promoter regions. Thus, our analysis supports the view that identification of regulatory elements by a database search provides evidence for a specific pattern of gene expression. Activation by pathway-specific regulators may suggest a physiological function for as yet uncharacterized genes. Copyright (c) 2005 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
