Fate of terms referring to general/nonspecific/basal versus specific transcription

From GO Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Proposal

This is a group of 12 Biological Process (BP) and 7 Molecular Function (MF) terms that represent general/nonspecific/basal transcription versus specific transcription.

  1. MERGE 6 MF terms into equivalent BP terms: In MF, there are three terms for general/nonspecific/basal vs specific transcription repressor activities and there are three RNAP II specific terms for general/nonspecific/basal vs specific "transcription factor activity". We propose to MERGE these 6 MF terms into the BP terms with the same meanings because they are defined only in terms of affect on a process and not in terms of how they act, which is how we are now defining MF terms.
    - There was a counterproposal to the original proposal to MERGE; thus instead, these will be OBSOLETED.
    • GO:0003704 specific RNA polymerase II transcription factor activity
    • GO:0016252 nonspecific RNA polymerase II transcription factor activity
    • GO:0016251 general RNA polymerase II transcription factor activity
    • GO:0016566 specific transcriptional repressor activity
    • GO:0017163 basal transcription repressor activity
    • GO:0016565 general transcriptional repressor activity
  2. MERGE 1 MF term into a more general MF term: The mediator activity MF term is included here because it is a child of one of the above terms. We propose to merge it into a more general MF term that is defined in terms of how this class of factors act.
    • GO:0016455 RNA polymerase II transcription mediator activity
  3. MERGE 11 BP terms into parent BP terms: In BP, there are two terms for RNAP II processes. The rest are all regulation terms; most of these are specific to RNAP II, but three are general to any "gene-specific transcription". We propose to MERGE these 11 BP terms into parent BP terms.
    • GO:0032569 gene-specific transcription from RNA polymerase II promoter
    • GO:0032568 general transcription from RNA polymerase II promoter
    • GO:0032583 regulation of gene-specific transcription
    • GO:0043193 positive regulation of gene-specific transcription
    • GO:0032582 negative regulation of gene-specific transcription

    • GO:0010552 positive regulation of gene-specific transcription from RNA polymerase II promoter
    • GO:0010553 negative regulation of gene-specific transcription from RNA polymerase II promoter
    • GO:0090039 regulation of gene-specific transcription elongation from RNA polymerase II promoter
    • GO:0090040 positive regulation of gene-specific transcription elongation from RNA polymerase II promoter
    • GO:0090041 negative regulation of gene-specific transcription elongation from RNA polymerase II promoter
  4. RENAME 1 BP term One of these BP terms merely needs to be renamed to be consistent with its existing definition and placement in the structure.
    • GO:0006990 positive regulation of gene-specific transcription involved in unfolded protein response

  • As proposed, MERGED 11 BP terms into parent BP terms. [done 5/12/2011]
  • As proposed, RENAMED 1 BP term (originally positive regulation of gene-specific transcription involved in unfolded protein response; GO:0006990) to remove "gene-specific" phrase and be consistent with its existing definition and placement in the structure [done 5/12/2011]

Problems with "general/non-specific/basal" vs "specific" transcription

Issues

In the [original proposal for the "general/non-specific/basal" vs "specific" terms], we proposed to try to rework these terms to be types of preinitiation complex (PIC) formation. However, we have been unable to come up with any clear distinction or separation between these terms, either in terms of function or process. Basically, these terms reflect outdating thinking, probably based in part on the use of a very limited set of promoters for in vitro experiments.

  • Early on it was thought that the RNAP II "general transcription factors", or GTFs were involved in preinitation complex (PIC) formation at ALL RNAP II promoters. However, it is now clear that there is no single type of RNAP II promoter. Thus there are probably many types of PICs and the "general" factors may not be general. Thus Sikorsky & Buratowski (2009) use the term basal rather than general.
  • The current definition for general says "non-specifically regulated". This is probably not really the case. Transcription of the set of genes that requires only basal transcription factors is regulated, they just don't require additional non-basal factors to recognize the promoter. It is also a quite large set of genes, larger than the typical number of genes that is responsive to a typical "gene-specific" activator, and they are active in "standard" growth conditions. It is now known that there are some large scale changes in the transcriptome of a cell, for example during differentiation, that are regulated by changing the set of basal transcription factors that are expressed.
  • It is not the case that there is one set of genes involved in basal transcription and another set involved in specific transcription. Basal refers to transcription that can occur only with basal transcription (initiation) factors. "Gene-specific" refers to cases where the promoter sequence is not recognized directly by the basal factors, but instead by a "gene-specific" regulatory transcription factor, which then initiates the process to recruit basal transcription factors and RNAP II. Everything involved in basal transcription is also involved in gene-specific transcription. Thus "gene-specific transcription" does not represent a completely separate process from "general/non-specific/basal transcription", but rather an additional level of regulation where additional factors are required for promoter recognition or some subsequent step, but which still requires basal factors. In a comprehensive review of eukaryotic general transcription machinery, Thomas and Chiang (2006) use the phrase activator-dependent for this situation, consistent with the phrase that is used in E. coli for these cases where an "activator" is required in addition to basal machinery.

Useful reviews

Reannotation suggestions

MF terms

  • 1 MERGE
    Merge RNA polymerase II transcription mediator activity (GO:0016455) into MF term RNA polymerase II transcription cofactor activity (GO:0001104)
    Also consider annotating to the CC term mediator complex (GO:0016592)
  • 6 OBSOLETIONS (as per modified proposal to obsolete instead of merge)
    • For these three terms: done
      • GO:0003704 specific RNA polymerase II transcription factor activity
      • GO:0016252 nonspecific RNA polymerase II transcription factor activity
      • GO:0016251 general RNA polymerase II transcription factor activity
      Obsolete all 3 terms
      These three terms are all defined in terms of the process affected, but not in terms of how the function is carried out. Thus, although these terms have been present in the MF ontology, they actually represent BP information. Since the general/non-specific vs specific distinction is not valid with respect to process and these terms are all specific to RNAP II without conveying any additional detail, the BP term is the only term to which all annotations can be transferred without review.
      • consider the BP term transcription from RNA polymerase II promoter (GO:0006366) as the equivalent meaning
      • For reannotation in the MF tree, consider these terms and their children:
        • GO:0001076 - RNA polymerase II transcription factor binding transcription factor activity
        • GO:0000991 - core RNA polymerase II binding transcription factor activity
        • GO:0000981 - sequence-specific DNA binding RNA polymerase II transcription factor activity
    • For these three terms: done
      • GO:0016566 specific transcriptional repressor activity
      • GO:0017163 basal transcription repressor activity
      • GO:0016565 general transcriptional repressor activity
      Obsolete all 3 terms
      These three terms are all defined in terms of the process affected, but not in terms of how the function is carried out. Thus, although these terms have been present in the MF ontology, they actually represent BP information. Since the general/non-specific vs specific distinction is not valid with respect to process and these terms are all related to repression of transcription, the BP term is the only term to which all annotations can be transferred without review. Similarly to the merge of "transcription" and its regulation terms into "transcription, DNA-dependent" and its regulation terms, we are suggesting merging into the "DNA-dependent" form of the the term because we feel that the majority of the annotations are already intended to be for DNA-dependent transcription.
      • Consider BP term negative regulation of transcription, DNA-dependent (GO:0045892) as the equivalent meaning
      • For reannotation in the MF tree, consider these terms and their children or requesting similar terms under protein binding transcription factor activity (GO:0000988):
        • GO:0001141 - bacterial-type RNA polymerase core promoter proximal region sequence-specific DNA binding transcription factor activity involved in negative regulation of transcription
        • GO:0001078 - RNA polymerase II core promoter proximal region sequence-specific DNA binding transcription factor activity involved in negative regulation of transcription

BP terms

  • Two basic process terms trying to distinguish "gene-specific" vs "general" transcription
    Merge these two terms into transcription from RNA polymerase II promoter (GO:0006366)
    • gene-specific transcription from RNA polymerase II promoter (GO:0032569) done
    • general transcription from RNA polymerase II promoter (GO:0032568) done
    These terms both relate to transcription from an RNAP II promoter. We are moving the annotations up to the parent term since "gene-specific transcription" and "general transription are not distinct processes.
  • Three regulation terms at the general level of "gene-specific transcription"
    • Merge regulation of gene-specific transcription (GO:0032583) into regulation of transcription, DNA-dependent (GO:0006355) done
    • Merge positive regulation of gene-specific transcription (GO:0043193) into positive regulation of transcription, DNA-dependent (GO:0045893) done
    • Merge negative regulation of gene-specific transcription (GO:0032582) into negative regulation of transcription, DNA-dependent (GO:0045892) done
    These terms are all already defined in terms of DNA-dependent transcription, so if any annotations were made for "RNA-dependent transcription", they were made incorrectly. However, based on what we have seen, we feel that the vast majority of annotations will be for DNA-dependent transcription. Thus, we are moving the annotations up to the parent term since "gene-specific transcription" isn't a distinct process.
  • Three regulation terms for "gene-specific transcription from RNA polymerase II promoter"
    • Merge regulation of gene-specific transcription from RNA polymerase II promoter (GO:0010551) into regulation of transcription from RNA polymerase II promoter (GO:0006357) done
    • Merge positive regulation of gene-specific transcription from RNA polymerase II promoter (GO:0010552) into positive regulation of transcription from RNA polymerase II promoter (GO:0045944) [NOTE: fix def of 45994, use 'an' instead of 'the' to preface promoter.] done
    • Merge negative regulation of gene-specific transcription from RNA polymerase II promoter (GO:0010553) into negative regulation of transcription from RNA polymerase II promoter (GO:0000122) done
    We are just moving all these annotations up to the corresponding parent terms since "gene-specific transcription" isn't a distinct process.
  • Three regulation terms for "gene-specific transcription elongation from RNA polymerase II promoter"
    • Merge regulation of gene-specific transcription elongation from RNA polymerase II promoter (GO:0090039) into regulation of transcription elongation from RNA polymerase II promoter (GO:0034243) done
    • Merge positive regulation of gene-specific transcription elongation from RNA polymerase II promoter (GO:0090040) into positive regulation of transcription elongation from RNA polymerase II promoter (GO:0032968) done
    • Merge negative regulation of gene-specific transcription elongation from RNA polymerase II promoter (GO:0090041) into negative regulation of transcription elongation from RNA polymerase II promoter (GO:0034244) done
  • One term for a specific set of RNAP II genes
    • positive regulation of gene-specific transcription involved in unfolded protein response (GO:0006990)
    Rename to positive regulation of transcription from RNA polymerase II promoter involved in unfolded protein response done; David please check cross-products
    This term is already defined in terms of RNAP II transcription and already has appropriate is_a parentage under a term that will not be affected by the transcription overhaul.
