Activation of Su(Hw)-Controlled Genes Is Associated with Increase in GAF Binding

The interaction of the GAF protein with the promoters of neuron-specific genes during activation and repression of transcription was studied. We showed that, while the Su(Hw) protein remains stably associated with the promoters of these genes at different transcriptional state, the GAF protein level is significantly higher when transcription is activated.
This work was carried out using the infrastructure of the Center for Collective Use of the Institute of Gene Biology, Russian Academy of Sciences “Biology of the Living Cell and Drug Biomedical Nanotransporters.”
This study was supported by the Russian Foundation for Basic Research (project no. 17-54-45098).
