Identification of psiB genes of plasmids F and R6-5. Molecular basis for psiB enhanced expression in plasmid R6-5.


:PsiB protein of plasmid R6-5 inhibits the induction of the SOS pathway. The F sex factor also carries a psiB gene homologous to that of R6-5. Yet, it fails to inhibit SOS induction. In order to solve this difference, we characterized the psiB genes of R6-5 and F. We found that (i) the sequences of the two psiB genes share extensive homology the predicted amino acid sequences of the two proteins differing by 5 residues, (ii) the expression of R6-5 psiB is 4 times higher than F psiB gene, (iii) in plasmid R6-5, a Tn10 transposon upstream from the psiB gene enhances psiB expression. Hence, the F sex factor may be unable to prevent SOS induction for two non-exclusive reasons: (i) F PsiB protein, being slightly different from R6-5, may be less active, (ii) the level of synthesis of F PsiB protein may be insufficient to prevent SOS induction.

    abstract::Sug1 and Sug2 are two of six ATPases in the 19S regulatory particle of the 26S proteasome. We have shown previously that these proteins play a non-proteolytic role in the transcription of the GAL genes in yeast. In this study, we probe the requirement for these factors in stress-induced transcription in yeast. It is k...
