AP-1-like transcription factor YAP2 - P24813 (AP2_YEAST)


Protein Feature View of PDB entries mapped to a UniProtKB sequence  

Transcription activator involved in oxidative stress response and cadmium resistance. Regulates the transcription of genes overrepresented for the function of stabilizing proteins including the inducible Hsp90-family protein HSP82. Preferentially binds to promoters with the core binding site 5'-TTA[CG]TAA-3'. Activity of the transcription factor is controlled through oxidation of specific cysteine residues resulting in the alteration of its subcellular location. Activation by alkyl hydroperoxides or cadmium induces nuclear accumulation and as a result CAD1/YAP2 transcriptional activity. UniProt

Subunit Structure
Homodimer; disulfide-linked, upon oxidation (Probable). Interacts in the nucleus with the nuclear export protein CRM1 (PubMed:17187783). Interacts with RCK1 (PubMed:15341652). UniProt
Contains a C-terminal cysteine rich domain (c-CRD), but lacks the N-terminal CRD (n-CRD) found in its paralog YAP1. It probably also contains embedded in the c-CRD a nuclear export signal, with which the nuclear export protein CRM1/exportin 1 may interact in the absence of inter- or intramolecular disulfide bonds (or otherwise oxidized/modified cysteines) within the c-CRD.

Data origin/color codes
The vertical color bar on the left side indicates data provenance.
Data in green originates from UniProtKB  
Variation data (sourced from UniProt) shows non-genetic variation from the ExPASy   and dbSNP   websites.
Data in yellow originates from Pfam  , by interacting with the HMMER3 web site  
Data in purple originates from Phosphosite  .
Data in orange originates from the SCOP   (version 1.75) and SCOPe   (version 2.04) classifications.
Data in grey has been calculated using BioJava  . Protein disorder predictions are based on JRONN (Troshin, P. and Barton, G. J. unpublished), a Java implementation of RONN  
  • Red: potentially disorderd region
  • Blue: probably ordered region.
Hydropathy has been calculated using a sliding window of 15 residues and summing up scores from standard hydrophobicity tables.
  • Red: hydrophobic
  • Blue: hydrophilic.
Data in lilac represent the genomic exon structure projected onto the UniProt sequence.
Data in blue originates from PDB
  • Secstruc: Secondary structure projected from representative PDB entries onto the UniProt sequence.
Sequence Mismatches It is now possible to see information about expression tags, cloning artifacts, and many other details related to sequence mismatches.
Icons represent a number of different sequence modifications that can be observed in PDB files. For example the 'T' icon T represents expression tags that have been added to the sequence. The 'E' icon E represents an engineered mutation. However, besides these two, there are many other icons. For more information about the meaning and exact position of a sequence modification, move the cursor over the icon.
