Gene Ontology Details

Gene Ontology

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. SGD has manually curated and high-throughput GO Annotations, both derived from the literature, as well as computational, or predicted, annotations. Click "Gene Ontology Details" to view all GO information and evidence for this locus as well as biological processes it shares with other genes.


Summary
Transcription factor that represses expression of hypoxia-induced genes in the presence of oxygen; also represses target genes during osmotic stress

Phenotype Details

Phenotype

Phenotype annotations for a gene are curated single mutant phenotypes that require an observable (e.g., "cell shape"), a qualifier (e.g., "abnormal"), a mutant type (e.g., null), strain background, and a reference. In addition, annotations are classified as classical genetics or high-throughput (e.g., large scale survey, systematic mutation set). Whenever possible, allele information and additional details are provided. Click "Phenotype Details" to view all phenotype annotations and evidence for this locus as well as phenotypes it shares with other genes.


Interaction Details

Interaction

Interaction annotations are curated by BioGRID and include physical or genetic interactions observed between at least two genes. An interaction annotation is composed of the interaction type, name of the interactor, assay type (e.g., Two-Hybrid), annotation type (e.g., manual or high-throughput), and a reference, as well as other experimental details. Click "Interaction Details" to view all interaction annotations and evidence for this locus, including an interaction visualization.

Summary
ROX1 encodes an alpha helix transcription factor of the high mobility group (HMG) family. Rox1p binds 5'-YYHATTGTTCTC-3' motifs in the promoters of diverse hypoxic genes and prevents their expression in aerobic conditions. Mot3p enhances this aerobic repression by helping Rox1p recruit the Ssn6p/Tup1p general co-repressor complex and by stabilizing the Rox1p-Ssn6p interaction. Rox1p is important for growth and modulation of ergosterol levels in response to high osmolarity. Rox1p binds telomeric X elements and controls the propagation of telomeric silencing toward centromeres in response to stress and metabolic changes. ROX1 transcription is regulated by Hap1p. When oxygen levels drop, Hap1p is inactivated and ROX1 is not expressed, allowing aerobic expression of genes involved in the hypoxic response.

Expression Details

Expression

Expression data are derived from records contained in the Gene Expression Omnibus (GEO), and are first log2 transformed and normalized. Referenced datasets may contain one or more condition(s), and as a result there may be a greater number of conditions than datasets represented in a single clickable histogram bar. The histogram division at 0.0 separates the down-regulated (green) conditions and datasets from those that are up-regulated (red).
