The three genes that form the UGA regulon in Saccharomyces cerevisiae are responsible for the transport and degradation of γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA) in this organism. Despite the differences in the sequence of their promoters, these genes similarly respond to GABA stimuli. The expression of UGA1, UGA2 and UGA4 depends on GABA induction and nitrogen catabolite repression (NCR). The induction of these genes requires the action of at least two positive proteins, the specific Uga3 and the… CONTINUE READING
