STRINGSTRING
GAL4 protein (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) - STRING interaction network
"GAL4" - DNA-binding transcription factor required for activating GAL genes in Saccharomyces cerevisiae
Nodes:
Network nodes represent proteins
splice isoforms or post-translational modifications are collapsed, i.e. each node represents all the proteins produced by a single, protein-coding gene locus.
Node Color
colored nodes:
query proteins and first shell of interactors
white nodes:
second shell of interactors
Node Content
empty nodes:
proteins of unknown 3D structure
filled nodes:
some 3D structure is known or predicted
Edges:
Edges represent protein-protein associations
associations are meant to be specific and meaningful, i.e. proteins jointly contribute to a shared function; this does not necessarily mean they are physically binding each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
Others
textmining
co-expression
protein homology

GAL4DNA-binding transcription factor required for activating GAL genes; responds to galactose; repressed by Gal80p and activated by Gal3p; This protein is a positive regulator for the gene expression of the galactose-induced genes such as GAL1, GAL2, GAL7, GAL10, and MEL1 which code for the enzymes used to convert galactose to glucose. It recognizes a 17 base pair sequence in (5’-CGGRNNRCYNYNCNCCG-3’) the upstream activating sequence (UAS-G) of these genes (881 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
GAL80
Transcriptional regulator involved in the repression of GAL genes in the absence of galactose; inhibits transcriptional activation by Gal4p; inhibition relieved by Gal3p or Gal1p binding; This protein is a negative regulator for the gene expression of the lactose/galactose metabolic genes. It binds to GAL4 and so blocks transcriptional activation by it, in the absence of an inducing sugar (435 aa)
       
 
  0.995
GAL1
Galactokinase, phosphorylates alpha-D-galactose to alpha-D-galactose-1-phosphate in the first step of galactose catabolism; expression regulated by Gal4p (528 aa)
       
 
  0.980
GAL3
Transcriptional regulator involved in activation of the GAL genes in response to galactose; forms a complex with Gal80p to relieve Gal80p inhibition of Gal4p; binds galactose and ATP but does not have galactokinase activity; The GAL3 regulatory function is required for rapid induction of the galactose system. At normal induction, galactose in the presence of the GAL3 protein may lead to the induction of the GAL genes, including GAL1. Then the galactokinase protein (GAL1) in the presence of galactose may reinforce the induction leading to a higher expression level. Upon depletion of gal [...] (520 aa)

SPT15
TATA-binding protein, general transcription factor that interacts with other factors to form the preinitiation complex at promoters, essential for viability; General transcription factor that functions at the core of the DNA-binding general transcription factor complex TFIID. Binding of TFIID to a promoter (with or without TATA element) is the initial step in preinitiation complex (PIC) formation. TFIID plays a key role in the regulation of gene expression by RNA polymerase II through different activities such as transcription activator interaction, core promoter recognition and select [...] (240 aa)
       
 
  0.972
GAL11
Subunit of the RNA polymerase II mediator complex; associates with core polymerase subunits to form the RNA polymerase II holoenzyme; affects transcription by acting as target of activators and repressors; forms part of the tail domain of mediator; Component of the Mediator complex, a coactivator involved in the regulated transcription of nearly all RNA polymerase II-dependent genes. Mediator functions as a bridge to convey information from gene-specific regulatory proteins to the basal RNA polymerase II transcription machinery. The Mediator complex, having a compact conformation in it [...] (1081 aa)

HIS3
Imidazoleglycerol-phosphate dehydratase, catalyzes the sixth step in histidine biosynthesis; mutations cause histidine auxotrophy and sensitivity to Cu, Co, and Ni salts; transcription is regulated by general amino acid control via Gcn4p (220 aa)
           
  0.923
URA3
Orotidine-5’-phosphate (OMP) decarboxylase, catalyzes the sixth enzymatic step in the de novo biosynthesis of pyrimidines, converting OMP into uridine monophosphate (UMP); converts 5-FOA into 5-fluorouracil, a toxic compound (267 aa)
           
  0.923
LEU2
Beta-isopropylmalate dehydrogenase (IMDH), catalyzes the third step in the leucine biosynthesis pathway; Catalyzes the oxidation of 3-carboxy-2-hydroxy-4- methylpentanoate (3-isopropylmalate) to 3-carboxy-4-methyl-2- oxopentanoate. The product decarboxylates to 4-methyl-2 oxopentanoate (364 aa)
           
  0.923
SSN3
Cyclin-dependent protein kinase, component of RNA polymerase II holoenzyme; involved in phosphorylation of the RNA polymerase II C-terminal domain; involved in glucose repression; Component of the SRB8-11 complex. The SRB8-11 complex is a regulatory module of the Mediator complex which is itself involved in regulation of basal and activated RNA polymerase II- dependent transcription. The SRB8-11 complex may be involved in the transcriptional repression of a subset of genes regulated by Mediator. It may inhibit the association of the Mediator complex with RNA polymerase II to form the h [...] (555 aa)

SNF1
AMP-activated serine/threonine protein kinase found in a complex containing Snf4p and members of the Sip1p/Sip2p/Gal83p family; required for transcription of glucose-repressed genes, thermotolerance, sporulation, and peroxisome biogenesis; Essential for release from glucose repression. It interacts and has functional relationship to the regulatory protein SNF4. Could phosphorylate CAT8. Phosphorylates histone H3 to form H3S10ph, which promotes H3K14ac formation, and which is required for transcriptional activation through TBP recruitment to the promoters (633 aa)
