Systematic Name Gene Name Motif ID Expert Confidence Dubious? Notes
V YMR072W ABF2 541 Medium Dubious Protein is not expected to be sequence specific. But motif is obtained in vitro. May need further investigation. Give medium confidence, but label as dubious.
V YDR477W SNF1 1110 Medium Dubious Motif 1110 has a quite strong correspondence to ChIP-chip data (from which it is derived). However, there seems to be no evidence that this is a sequence-specific DNA-binding protein. Aside from a weak relationship to expression data there is no corroborating evidence here (and no DNA-binding domain).
V YER109C FLO8 67 Low Dubious I found no evidence that this is a sequence-specific DNA-binding protein, i.e. that it binds directly to DNA in vitro. The motif has a limited relationship to ChIP-chip data. The literature motif scores better than the motif derived from the ChIP-chip study. Also, the motif is identical to that for MSS11.
V YGL192W IME4 1000 Low Dubious I could not find evidence that IME4 is a sequence-specific DNA-binding protein. C3H1 is more typically an RNA-binding domain or something besides nucleic acid binding. There is one significant ChIP-chip motif but perhaps it binds through a cofactor. No other supporting data.
V YER051W JHD1 662 Low Dubious This is a histone demethylase. No evidence for direct DNA binding. Motif 662 is significant. Include, but give low confidence - could be a cofactor.
V YCL055W KAR4 127 Low Dubious Evidence for sequence specific DNA binding seems weak, hence low confidence
V YMR164C MSS11 204 Low Dubious There is no evidence that this is a sequence-specific DNA-binding protein, rather than a cofactor. The motif has a limited relationship to ChIP-chip data. The literature motif scores better than the motif derived from the ChIP-chip study. Also, the motif is identical to that for FLO8.
V YDL002C NHP10 502 Low Dubious NHP10 is an HMGB-type protein. Known to prefer DNA ends. There is no independent support for the single PBM motif.
V YMR075W RCO1 1066 Low Dubious There is no evidence that this is a sequence-specific DNA-binding protein rather than a chromatin factor. The higher-scoring ChIP-chip motif appears to have low information content and does not display strong correspondence to the data it was generated from or to expression data.
V YPR054W SMK1 1875 Low Dubious I could not find any evidence that this protein binds directly to DNA. There is only one motif derived from ChIP-chip but it bears little relationship to the data from which it was derived.
V YGL131C SNT2 612 Low Dubious All three motifs are derived from the same ChIP-chip data. However, there is no corroborating data, and not all SANT domains are DNA-binding - or are non-specific, in chromatin proteins. So it could be a cofactor motif; in fact it is similar to motifs of Stp3 and Stp4. The protein has other chromatin-related domains (BAH, PHD/RING). Hence the "Low" assessment.
V YER161C SPT2 1114 Low Dubious I could not find any evidence that this protein binds directly to DNA. None of the motifs is significant. All are from ChIP-chip. Motif 1114 chosen simploy because it has the highest numbers overall.
V YKL020C SPT23 670 Low Dubious I could not find any evidence that this protein binds directly to DNA. It has an IPT domain but no REL domain. None of the ChIP-derived motifs scores highly on ChIP data or anything else. Motif 670 bears some relationship to expression data.
V YMR053C STB2 710 Low Dubious No direct evidence that this is a DNA-binding protein. Three ChIP-derived motifs but none scores highly by any measure. Motif 710 is an arbitrary choice - looks tidy.
V YPR086W SUA7 1327 Low Dubious This protein is not expected to bind DNA; it is supposed to bind DNA-bound TBP. The TIRF-PBM data used to generate the motif included only 96 sequences.
V YNL139C THO2 786 Low Dubious It is not clear that this is a sequence-specific DNA-binding protein; it contains no DNA-binding domain and has no known in vitro sequence specificity. The motif comes only from ChIP-chip.
V YPL139C UME1 1143 Low Dubious It is not clear that this is a sequence-specific DNA-binding protein; it contains no DNA-binding domain and has no known in vitro sequence specificity. The motif comes only from ChIP-chip. But, it has a high P-value, and the motif has low similarity to other motifs, with the possible exception of Yox1. But the function of the protein is very different from that of Yox1. Tough call - leave as Dubious, but give Low confidence to motif 1143.
V YOR230W WTM1 1148 Low Dubious It is not clear that this is a sequence-specific DNA-binding protein; it contains no DNA-binding domain and has no known in vitro sequence specificity. The motifs come only from ChIP-chip so scoring on ChIP-chip is circular.

V YML051W GAL80 0   Dubious Gal80 is not a sequence-specific DNA-binding protein
V YNL199C GCR2 0   Dubious Gcr2 is not a DNA-binding protein. SGD: "Gcr1p is a DNA-binding protein interacting with the consensus sequence CTTCC, whereas Gcr2p interacts with Gcr1p". But, ChIP-chip motif 606 is probably the best Gcr1 motif available (even though it came from Gcr2 ChIP).

V YGL197W MDS3 0   Dubious I found no evidence that this is a sequence-specific DNA-binding protein. ChIP-chip motif does not correlate with ChIP-chip data, or anything else.
V YIL128W MET18 0   Dubious I found no evidence that this is a sequence-specific DNA-binding protein. ChIP-chip motif does not correlate with ChIP-chip data, or anything else.
V YDR277C MTH1 0   Dubious SGD: "interacts with Rgt1p and the Snf3p and Rgt2p glucose sensors". There is no evidence that this is a sequence-specific transcription factor.
V YOR372C NDD1 0   Dubious There is no evidence that this is a sequence-specific DNA-binding protein, either in vitro or in vivo or in its sequence. The ChIP-chip motif that scores most highly is actually an MCM1 motif, which is consistent with the role of NDD1 as a "transcriptional activator essential for nuclear division".
V YLR254C NDL1 0   Dubious Unlikely to be true TF.
V YOR156C NFI1 0   Dubious Unlikely to be true TF.
V YGR089W NNF2 0   Dubious I did not find any evidence that this is a sequence-specific DNA-binding protein.
V YHL020C OPI1 0   Dubious Motifs do not match and do not explain the ChIP-chip data from which they are derived. Motif 1049 resembles the expected UAS-INO (Ino2/4) binding site (CATGTGAAAT) - Opi1 acts as a repressor by binding Ino2. I believe this protein is a corepressor, and Ino2/4 are the DNA-binding factors. Dubious as sequence-specific TF.

V YIL119C RPI1 0   Dubious It is not clear that this is a sequence-specific DNA-binding protein; it contains no DNA-binding domain and has no known in vitro sequence specificity. The motif comes only from ChIP-chip so scoring on ChIP-chip is circular.
V YFR037C RSC8 0   Dubious Unlikely to be true TF.
V YOR077W RTS2 0   Dubious Homolog of Kin17; not a typical C2H2 zinc finger. Believed to be "chromatin-associated proteins involved in UV response and DNA replication". No evidence for sequence-specific DNA-binding. Single ChIP-chip motif does not have strong correspondence to the data from which it is derived.
V YBL052C SAS3 0   Dubious Unlikely to be true TF.
V YNL257C SIP3 0   Dubious Sip3 is a protein that "transcription through interaction with DNA-bound Snf1p" (SGD); no DNA-binding domain and no evidence for direct interaction with DNA or intrinsic sequence specificity.
V YKR101W SIR1 0   Dubious There is no evidence that the SIR proteins are sequence-specific DNA-binding proteins. Most of the motifs for them are Rap1 sites.
V YDL042C SIR2 0   Dubious There is no evidence that the SIR proteins are sequence-specific DNA-binding proteins. Most of the motifs for them are Rap1 sites.

V YOR308C SNU66 0   Dubious Unlikely to be true TF.
V YNL309W STB1 0   Dubious No direct evidence that this is a DNA-binding protein. It binds Swi6 and the ChIP motifs all resemble Swi4 binding sites.
V YKL072W STB6 0   Dubious It is not clear that this is a sequence-specific DNA-binding protein; it contains no DNA-binding domain and has no known in vitro sequence specificity. The motif comes only from ChIP-chip so scoring on ChIP-chip is circular. The ChIP-chip motif looks a little like a Rap1 motif.
V YGR002C SWC4 0   Dubious Unlikely to be true TF.
V YPL016W SWI1 0   Dubious Unlikely to be true TF.
V YJL176C SWI3 0   Dubious Unlikely to be true TF.
V YLR182W SWI6 0   Dubious Swi6 is a cofactor, not a DNA-binding protein. These motifs are for Mbp1 or Swi4.
V YDR362C TFC6 0   Dubious Unlikely to be true TF.
V YER063W THO1 0   Dubious Unlikely to be true TF.
V YNL079C TPM1 0   Dubious Unlikely to be true TF.
V YDR485C VPS72 0   Dubious Unlikely to be true TF.
V YOR229W WTM2 0   Dubious It is not clear that this is a sequence-specific DNA-binding protein; it contains no DNA-binding domain and has no known in vitro sequence specificity. The motif comes only from ChIP-chip so scoring on ChIP-chip is circular.
V YLL054C   526 Medium   Three motifs available, from PBMs; two dimeric GAL4-like motifs but with different spacings and one monomeric. No backup data but looks tidy. Keep all three.
V YLL054C   2242 Medium   Three motifs available, from PBMs; two dimeric GAL4-like motifs but with different spacings and one monomeric. No backup data but looks tidy. Keep all three.
V YLL054C   816 Medium   Three motifs available, from PBMs; two dimeric GAL4-like motifs but with different spacings and one monomeric. No backup data but looks tidy. Keep all three.
V YER184C   2095 Medium   One motif from PBMs is a monomeric GAL4-like motif and the other is dimeric. Medium confidence because there is little independent support, and both contain the CCGG core that I believe may be an artifact. However, both score significantly on ChIP-chip data. Only 512 is significant on expression data.
V YER184C   512 Medium   One motif from PBMs is a monomeric GAL4-like motif and the other is dimeric. Medium confidence because there is little independent support, and both contain the CCGG core that I believe may be an artifact. However, both score significantly on ChIP-chip data. Only 512 is significant on expression data.
