Summary of "ChIP-exo analysis highlights Fkh1 and Fkh2 transcription factors as hubs that integrate multi-scale networks in budding yeast."

The understanding of the multi-scale nature of molecular networks represents a major challenge. For example, regulation of a timely cell cycle must be coordinated with growth, during which changes in metabolism occur, and integrate information from the extracellular environment, e.g. signal transduction. Forkhead transcription factors are evolutionarily conserved among eukaryotes, and coordinate a timely cell cycle progression in budding yeast. Specifically, Fkh1 and Fkh2 are expressed during a lengthy window of the cell cycle, thus are potentially able to function as hubs in the multi-scale cellular environment that interlocks various biochemical networks. Here we report on a novel ChIP-exo dataset for Fkh1 and Fkh2 in both logarithmic and stationary phases, which is analyzed by novel and existing software tools. Our analysis confirms known Forkhead targets from available ChIP-chip studies and highlights novel ones involved in the cell cycle, metabolism and signal transduction. Target genes are analyzed with respect to their function, temporal expression during the cell cycle, correlation with Fkh1 and Fkh2 as well as signaling and metabolic pathways they occur in. Furthermore, differences in targets between Fkh1 and Fkh2 are presented. Our work highlights Forkhead transcription factors as hubs that integrate multi-scale networks to achieve proper timing of cell division in budding yeast.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A family of basic helix-loop-helix transcription factors that control expression of a variety of GENES involved in CELL CYCLE regulation. E2F transcription factors typically form heterodimeric complexes with TRANSCRIPTION FACTOR DP1 or transcription factor DP2, and they have N-terminal DNA binding and dimerization domains. E2F transcription factors can act as mediators of transcriptional repression or transcriptional activation.

Maf transcription factors are a family of basic-leucine zipper transcription factors that are closely related to V-MAF ONCOGENE PROTEIN. The C-MAF PROTO-ONCOGENE PROTEIN was the first mammalian Maf transcription factor identified, and now the family is known to include a variety of other Maf proteins such as MAFB TRANSCRIPTION FACTOR; MAFF TRANSCRIPTION FACTOR; MAFG TRANSCRIPTION FACTOR; and MAFK TRANSCRIPTION FACTOR.

A family of transcription factors that contain a single cut domain and a divergent homeodomain. They regulate gene networks by controlling the expression of other transcription factors and they play an important role in CELL DIFFERENTIATION and METABOLISM.

A family of histone acetyltransferases that is structurally-related to CREB-BINDING PROTEIN and to E1A-ASSOCIATED P300 PROTEIN. They function as transcriptional coactivators by bridging between DNA-binding TRANSCRIPTION FACTORS and the basal transcription machinery. They also modify transcription factors and CHROMATIN through ACETYLATION.

Transcription factors that form transcription initiation complexes on DNA, bind to specific DNA-DIRECTED RNA POLYMERASES and are required to initiate transcription. Although their binding may be localized to distinct sequence and structural motifs within the DNA they are considered non-specific with regard to the specific gene being transcribed.
