Abstract

Mig1p is a zinc finger protein required for repression of glucose-regulated genes in budding yeast. On removal of medium glucose, gene repression is relieved via a mechanism that requires the SNF1 protein kinase complex. We show that Mig1p expressed as a glutathione-S-transferase fusion in bacteria is readily phosphorylated by the SNF1 kinase in vitro. Four phosphorylation sites were identified, i.e. Ser-222, Ser-278, Ser-311 and Ser-381. The latter three are exact matches to the recognition motif we previously defined for SNF1 and lie within regions shown to be required for SNF1-dependent derepression and nuclear-to-cytoplasmic translocation.
