Ty1 activation of gene expression observed in haploid cell types of Saccharomyces cerevisiae requires the STE7 and STE12 gene products. An activator sequence within Ty1 that is responsive to these two regulators has been defined. Complex formation between a factor in whole-cell extracts and the DNA regulatory element showed the same dependence on the STE7(More)
Cytoplasmic membranes of the strictly anaerobic sulfate-reducing bacterium Desulfovibrio vulgaris Hildenborough contain two terminal oxygen reductases, a bd quinol oxidase and a cc(b/o)o3 cytochrome oxidase (Cox). Viability assays pointed out that single Δbd, Δcox and double ΔbdΔcox deletion mutant strains were more sensitive to oxygen exposure than the WT(More)
Ty transposable-element insertion mutations of Saccharomyces cerevisiae can cause cell-type-dependent activation of adjacent-gene expression. Several cis-acting regulatory regions within Ty1 are responsible for the effect of Ty1 on adjacent-gene expression. One of these is the block II sequence that was defined by its homology to mammalian enhancers and to(More)
The DNA sequence of the Ty1 activating region from the CYC7-H2 mutant of Saccharomyces cerevisiae is presented. Analysis of the data revealed the presence of four simian virus 40-type enhancer core sequences. Two of the Ty1 enhancer cores are contiguous with sequences also homologous to the diploid control site at MAT alpha. We postulate that these two Ty1(More)
Some insertion mutations in Saccharomyces cerevisiae activate the expression of adjacent structural genes. The CYC7-H2 mutation is a Ty1 insertion 5' to the iso-2-cytochrome c coding region of CYC7. The Ty1 insertion causes a 20-fold increase in CYC7 expression in a and alpha haploid cell types of S. cerevisiae. This activation is repressed in the a/alpha(More)
Ty transposable element insertion mutations of Saccharomyces cerevisiae can cause cell-type-dependent activation of adjacent gene expression. Several cis-acting regulatory regions within Ty1 that are responsible for these effects were identified. A 211-base-pair (bp) region functions as an activator. This region includes the so-called U5 domain of delta and(More)
A yeast-Escherichia coli shuttle vector containing the M13 origin of replication has been constructed. This vector allows selection and replication in both Saccharomyces cerevisiae and E. coli, as well as single-stranded packaging from E. coli upon infection with a helper phage. The presence of a polylinker with various unique restriction sites facilitates(More)
One class of Ty insertion mutation in Saccharomyces cerevisiae activates expression of adjacent structural genes. The CYC7-H2 mutation, in which a Ty1 element is inserted 5' to the iso-2-cytochrome c coding region of CYC7, causes a 20-fold increase in CYC7 expression. Deletion analysis of CYC7-H2 has shown that distal regions of the Ty1 element are not(More)
We have determined the nucleotide sequence of both delta elements of a Ty1 transposon inserted near the CYC7 gene in the Saccharomyces cerevisiae CYC7-H2 mutant. The upstream delta element in this Ty1 has an unusual inverted repeat structure that may have been formed by an error during reverse transcription.
