Identification of ASK10 as a multicopy activator of Skn7p-dependent transcription of a HIS3 reporter gene

Yeast. 1996 Mar 15;12(3):267-72. doi: 10.1002/(SICI)1097-0061(19960315)12:3%3C267::AID-YEA897%3E3.0.CO;2-U.


Recent evidence has demonstrated that the yeast Skn7p appears to act as a 'response regulator' in a eukaryotic 'two-component' signal transduction pathway. A search to identify possible regulators of the SKN7 mediated 'two-component' regulatory system has identified Ask10p as a novel potential transcription factor. The ASK10 sequence has been deposited in GenBank with Accession Number U27209.
