Abstract


We have compared Saccharomyces cerevisiae global gene expression in wild-type and mutants (Deltahap2 and Deltahap4) of the HAP transcriptional complex, which has been shown to be necessary for growth on respiratory substrates. Several hundred ORFs are under positive or negative control of this complex and we analyse here in detail the effect of HAP on mitochondria. We found that most of the genes upregulated in the wild-type strain were involved in organelle functions, but practically none of the downregulated ones. Nuclear genes encoding the different subunits of the respiratory chain complexes figure in the genes more expressed in the wild-type than in the mutants, as expected, but in this group we also found key components of the mitochondrial translation apparatus. This control of mitochondrial translation may be one of the means of coordinating mitochondrial and nuclear gene expression in elaborating the respiratory chain. In addition, HAP controls the nuclear genes involved in several other mitochondrial processes (import, mitochondrial division) that define the metabolic state of the cell, but not mitochondrial DNA replication and transcription. In most cases, a putative CCAAT-binding site is present upstream of the ORF, while in others no such sites are present, suggesting the control to be indirect. The large number of genes regulated by the HAP complex, as well as the fact that HAP also regulates some putative transcriptional activators of unknown function, place this complex at a hierarchically high position in the global transcriptional regulation of the cell.
