The yeast Mig1 transcriptional repressor is dephosphorylated by glucose-dependent and -independent mechanisms.

A yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae Snf1 kinase, an analog of mammalian AMPK, regulates glucose derepression of genes required for utilization of alternative carbon sources through the transcriptional repressor Mig1. It has been suggested that the Glc7-Reg1 phosphatase dephosphorylates Mig1. Here we report that Mig1 is dephosphorylated by Glc7-Reg1 in an… CONTINUE READING
