Domain relationships



Association with the SNF1 complex (ASC) domain is found in the Sip1/Sip2/Gal83/AMPKbeta subunits of the SNF1/AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) complex [PMID: 11252725]. SNF1/AMPK are heterotrimeric enzymes composed of a catalytic alpha-subunit, a regulatory gamma-subunit and a regulatory/targeting beta-subunit [PMID: 9121458]. Saccharomyces cerevisiae encodes three beta-subunit genes, Sip1, Sip2 and Gal83 [PMID: 7813428, PMID: 10990457]. The beta-subunits function as target selective adaptors that recruit the catalytic kinase and regulator Snf4/gamma-subunits. The ASC domain is required for interaction with Snf4 [PMID: 11252725, PMID: 9121458].

The SNF1 kinase complex is required for transcriptional, metabolic, and developmental adaptations in response to glucose limitation [PMID: 17981722, PMID: 10207618]. As glucose levels decrease, Snf1 is activated and promotes the use of alternative carbon sources.
