response to pheromone treatment depends on Ste12 because the changes in expression of all of the genes that respond to
pheromone are abolished by loss of Ste12
A third genomic approach consists in the identiﬁcation
of Ste12-binding sites across the genome. Transcription
factors like Ste12 activate transcription by binding to
regulatory sequences upstream of the 5 ¿ end of regulated
transcripts. To map the genomic locations for Ste12 binding, cells were treated to chemically cross-link DNA to
proteins and then broken open. Enrichment for Ste12-DNA har06584_refA_001-020 11/4/06 10:10 AM Page 15 A.3 Mating: Cell-to-Cell Communication Through Pheromones 15 (c) Mapping of Ste12 DNA binding sites. (a) Genomic profile of yeast grown in the presence of
