We have identified regions in the promoters of the PYC1 and PYC2 genes from Saccharomyces cerevisiae involved in their regulation in different culture conditions. In the case of PYC1, a UAS in the region between -330/-297 and three repressing sequences with the common central core CCGCC at positions -457, -432 and -399 were identified. Specific binding of nuclear proteins to the -330/-214 DNA fragment was abolished in rtg mutants suggesting a role for the RTG genes in the control of PYC1 expression. In the case of the PYC2 promoter, elimination of a fragment from -417 to -291 brings about a two-fold decrease in the expression in repressed conditions and a similar increase in derepression.
