SWI8, chromatin-binding transcription regulator ADA2, L000000029, YDR448W
Transcription coactivator; component of the ADA and SAGA transcriptional adaptor/HAT (histone acetyltransferase) complexes
Saccharomyces cerevisiae (S288c)


BYC2, LYT2, MPK1, SLK2, mitogen-activated serine/threonine-protein kinase SLT2, L000001919, YHR030C
Serine/threonine MAP kinase; involved in regulating maintenance of cell wall integrity, cell cycle progression, and nuclear mRNA retention in heat shock; required for mitophagy and pexophagy; affects recruitment of mitochondria to phagophore assembly site (PAS); plays a role in adaptive response of cells to cold; regulated by the PKC1-mediated signaling pathway; SLT2 has a paralog, KDX1, that arose from the whole genome duplication
Saccharomyces cerevisiae (S288c)

Affinity Capture-Western

An interaction is inferred when a bait protein is affinity captured from cell extracts by either polyclonal antibody or epitope tag and the associated interaction partner identified by Western blot with a specific polyclonal antibody or second epitope tag. This category is also used if an interacting protein is visualized directly by dye stain or radioactivity. Note that this differs from any co-purification experiment involving affinity capture in that the co-purification experiment involves at least one extra purification step to get rid of potential contaminating proteins.


Mpk1 MAPK association with the paf1 complex blocks sen1-mediated premature transcription termination.

Kim KY, Levin DE

The Mpk1 MAPK of the yeast cell wall integrity pathway uses a noncatalytic mechanism to activate transcription of stress-induced genes by recruitment of initiation factors to target promoters. We show here that Mpk1 additionally serves a function in transcription elongation that is also independent of its catalytic activity. This function is mediated by an interaction between Mpk1 and the Paf1 ... [more]
