Abstract

In response to various stresses, as well as during the diauxic transition, the Msn2p and Msn4p transcription factors of are activated and induce a large set of genes. This activation is inhibited by the Ras/cAMP/PKA (cAMP-dependent protein kinase) pathway. Here we show by immunoblotting experiments that Msn2p and Msn4p are phosphorylated during growth on glucose, and become hyperphosphorylated at the diauxic transition and upon heat shock. This hyperphosphorylation is correlated with activation of Msn2/4p-dependent transcription. An increased level of cAMP prevents and reverses these hyperphosphorylations, indicating that kinases other than PKA are involved. These results suggest that PKA and stress-activated kinases control Msn2/4p activity by antagonistic phosphorylation. It was also noted that Msn4p is transiently increased at the diauxic transition. Msn2p and Msn4p present different hyperphosphorylation patterns in response to different stresses.
