Gene Ontology Help

SLIK (SAGA-like) complex Overview

GO Annotations consist of four mandatory components: a gene product, a term from one of the three Gene Ontology (GO) controlled vocabularies (Molecular Function, Biological Process, and Cellular Component), a reference, and an evidence code.

A transcriptional co-activator complex that accompanies Pol II during elongation, preferentially acetylates nucleosomal histones H3 and H2B and subsequently evicts nucleosomes from gene coding regions. Required for growth under stressful conditions to activate transcription of stress-responsive, Pol II-transcribed genes. Plays a role in the yeast retrograde response pathway that is important for gene expression changes during mitochondrial dysfunction.
GO Slim Terms

The yeast GO Slim terms are higher level terms that best represent the major S. cerevisiae biological processes, functions, and cellular components. The GO Slim terms listed here are the broader parent terms for the specific terms to which this gene product is annotated, and thus represent the more general processes, functions, and components in which it is involved.

DNA binding, acyltransferase activity, chromatin binding, histone binding, transferase activity, histone modification, peptidyl-amino acid modification, protein acylation, nucleus, organelle
