In the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Tup1, in association with Cyc8 (Ssn6), functions as a general transcriptional corepressor. This repression is mediated by recruitment of the Tup1–Cyc8 complex to target promoters through sequence-specific DNA-binding proteins such as Sko1, which mediates the HOG pathway-dependent regulation. We identified tup1 and cyc8 mutant alleles as the suppressor of osmo-sensitivity of the hog1Δ strain. In these mutants, although the expression of the genes under the control of DNA-binding proteins other than Sko1 was apparently normal, the Sko1-regulated genes GRE2 and AHP1 were derepressed under non-stress conditions, suggesting that the Tup1 and Cyc8 mutant proteins were specifically defective in the repression of the Sko1-dependent genes. Chromatin immunoprecipitation analyses of the GRE2 promoter in the mutants demonstrated that the Sko1–Tup1–Cyc8 complex was localized to the promoter, together with Gcn5/SAGA, suggesting that the erroneous recruitment of SAGA to the promoter led to the derepression.
