Saccharomyces cerevisiae BY4741 cells treated with n-alkanes
ABSTRACT: Transcripitonal profiling of Saccharomyces cerevisiae treated with 2% n-alkanes vs untreatment Multiple condition experiment, S. cerevisiae treated with n-alkanes (n-nonane, n-decane, n-undecane, n-dodecane, respectively) for 24hrs or 48hrs, compared to control (those without treatment)
BACKGROUND: Hydrocarbon alkanes have been recently considered as important next-generation biofuels because microbial production of alkane biofuels was demonstrated. However, the toxicity of alkanes to microbial hosts can possibly be a bottleneck for high productivity of alkane biofuels. To tackle this toxicity issue, it is essential to understand molecular mechanisms of interactions between alkanes and microbial hosts, and to harness these mechanisms to develop microbial host strains with impro ...[more]

Project description:The histone acetyltransferase Sas2 is part of the SAS-I complex and acetylates lysine 16 of histone H4 (H4 K16Ac) in the genome of Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Sas2-mediated H4 K16Ac is strongest over the coding region of genes with low expression. However, it is unclear how Sas2-mediated acetylation is incorporated into chromatin. Our previous work has shown physical interactions of SAS with the histone chaperones CAF-I and Asf1, suggesting a link between SAS-I mediated acetylation and chromatin assembly. Here, we find that Sas2-dependent H4 K16Ac in bulk histones requires passage of the cells through the S-phase of the cell cycle, and the rate of increase in H4 K16Ac depends on both CAF-I and Asf1, whereas steady-state levels and genome-wide distribution of H4 K16Ac shows only mild changes in their absence. Furthermore, H4 K16Ac is deposited in chromatin at genes upon repression, and this deposition requires the histone chaperone Spt6, but not CAF-I, Asf1, HIR or Rtt106. Altogether, our data indicate that Spt6 controls H4 K16Ac levels by incorporating K16-unacetylated H4 in strongly transcribed genes. Upon repression, Spt6 association is decreased, resulting in less deposition of K16-unacetylated and therefore in a concomitant increase of H4 K16Ac that is recycled during transcription.

Project description:To characterize cellular response to the anti-cancer ruthinium complex KP1019, budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae transcripitonal response to KP1019 was measured using microarray analysis. Although KP1019 molecular mechanism of action remains a matter of debate, the drug has been shown to bind DNA in biophysical assays and to damage DNA of colorectal and ovarian cancer cells in vitro. KP1019 has also been shown to induce mutations and induce cell cycle arrest in Saccharomyces cerevisiae, suggesting that budding yeast can serve as an appropriate model for characterizing the cellular response to the drug. Here we use a transcriptomic approach to characterize KP1019 induced transcriptional changes. Two concentrations of KP1019 (40 micrograms/mL and 80 micrograms/ml were assayed by microarray analysis to obtain comparative expression data for treated and untreated cells of the budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae (strain BY4741). Two biological replicates of each concentration were done. Each biological replicate was done in duplicate to allow for dye reversal controls.
