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.

Sample 2B: Whole cell yeast lysate from SEY6210 pep4-3 strain transformed with pJK22-pGBDU plasmid containing GAL4 DNA Binding domain fused to the VPS60 Gene (a kind gift from Prof. Tom Stevens from University of Oregon). Sample 2C: Whole cell yeast lysate from SEY6210 pep4-3 strain transformed with pJk23-pGAD plasmid containing GAL4 Active Domain fused to the VPS60 Gene (a kind gift from Prof. Tom Stevens from University of Oregon).
Primary: Lane 1: none. Lane 2: Anti-GAL4BD (ab1396) antibody at 1ug/ml. Secondary: HRP conjugated Goat anti-Rabbit secondary antibody at 1/10000 dilution. Predicted band size: 99 kDa. Additional bands: 56 kDa (possible isoform, Fusion Protein)
A stably transfected 293T human cell line harbouring the GAL4 upstream activation sequence was transiently transfected with a V5 or T7- tagged GAL4 DNA Binding Domain construct. 48 hours post transfection Chromatin was prepared according to the Abcam X-ChIP protocol. The ChIP was performed with 25 ug chromatin, 5ug of antibody and 20 ul of Protein A/G beads. A non-specific antibody was used as the negative control. The immunoprecipitated DNA was quantified by real time PCR (SYBR Green approach).
S. cerevisiae cells were incubated in raffinose-containing media then transferred to galactose-containing media to activate transcription of galactose activated genes. IP was performed with 500µl of cell extract incubated overnight with 5µl of ab1396 at 4°C, followed by the addition of 25µl of protein A sepharose beads and incubation for 2 hours (room temp). The subsequently purified DNA was analysed with 3 pairs of primers (see diagram). The results show that Gal4 binds specifically to the UAS region of Gal1-Gal10 in both raffinose and galactose, despite only 500-600bp between the UAS and 5' primer.
