  • RelevanceFunction: This protein is a positive regulator for the gene expression of the galactose-induced genes such as GAL1, GAL2, GAL7, GAL10, and MEL1 which encode for the enzymes used to convert galactose to glucose. It recognizes a 17 base pair sequence in (5'-CGGRNNRCYNYNCNCCG-3') the upstream activating sequence (UAS-G) of these genes. Subunit structure: Binds DNA as a homodimer. Interacts directly with the mediator subunits GAL11/MED15 and SRB4/MED17. Domain: The 9aaTAD motif (residues 862 to 870) is a transactivation domain present in a large number of yeast and animal transcription factors. Post-translational modification: Association between GAL11 and GAL4 may serve to expedite phosphorylation of GAL4.
