Heme regulates SOD2 transcription by activation and repression in Saccharomyces cerevisiae


SOD2 encodes the Saccharomyces cerevisiae manganese superoxide dismutase (MnSOD), a mitochondrial matrix protein. Heme regulates SOD2 transcription during both fermentative and respiratory growth by three mechanisms. First, SOD2 transcription is activated 10-fold by growth on a non-fermentable carbon source via the heme activator protein (Hap) 2-3-4-5… (More)
