Regulation of transcription in expressed and unexpressed mating type cassettes of yeast.


The genes that control the a, alpha and a/alpha cell types in Saccharomyces are carried on transposable elements known as a and alpha cassettes which reside at three different chromosomal loci. Examination of the transcripts by R-looping and filter hybridization indicates that each cassette is capable of producing two divergent transcripts. Cassettes at the MAT locus are transcribed constitutively. Transcription of cassettes at HML and HMR is prevented by trans-acting negative regulators.
