Regulation of SNM1, an inducible Saccharomyces cerevisiae gene required for repair of DNA cross-links.

The interstrand cross-link repair gene SNM1 of Saccharomyces cerevisiae was examined for regulation in response to DNA-damaging agents. Induction of SNM1-lacZ fusions was detected in response to nitrogen mustard, cis-platinum (II) diamine dichloride, UV light, and 8-methoxypsoralen + UVA, but not after heat-shock treatment or incubation with 2-dimethylaminoethylchloride, methylmethane sulfonate or 4-nitroquinoline-N-oxide. The promoter of SNM1 contains a 15 bp motif, which shows homology to the DRE2 box of the RAD2 promoter. Similar motifs have been found in promoter regions of other damage-inducible DNA repair genes. Deletion of this motif results in loss of inducibility of SNM1. Also, a putative negative upstream regulation sequence was found to be responsible for repression of constitutive transcription of SNM1. Surprisingly, no inducibility of SNM1 was found after treatment with DNA-damaging agents in strains without an intact DUN1 gene, while regulation seems unchanged in sad1 mutants.[1]
