We present an analysis of the DNA region located upstream of GAP1, the structural gene for the general amino acid permease, which contains the sites required for activation of transcription of this gene in response to the nitrogen source of the growth medium. This gene is not expressed in media containing glutamine, and its transcription is activated in response to Gln3p in cells using glutamate as the source of nitrogen and by Nil1p in cells using urea as the source of nitrogen. We show that… CONTINUE READING
