Avoiding unscheduled transcription in shared promoters: Saccharomyces cerevisiae Sum1p represses the divergent gene pair SPS18-SPS19 through a midsporulation element (MSE)

Abstract

The sporulation-specific gene SPS18 shares a common promoter region with the oleic acid-inducible gene SPS19. Both genes are transcribed in sporulating diploid cells, albeit unevenly in favour of SPS18, whereas in haploid cells grown on fatty acids only SPS19 is highly activated. Here, SPS19 oleate-response element (ORE) conferred activation on a basal CYC1… (More)
