The ubiquitin-proteasome system is involved in the control of all essential molecular processes under normal conditions and the response of cells to stress. Rpn4p serves as a key transcriptional regulator of the proteasome in Saccharomycetes yeast and is also involved in the cellular response to various stresses. In addition to proteasomal genes, Rpn4 affects the expression of several hundred other genes, including genes involved in DNA repair and oxidative stress response. At the same time, the molecular mechanisms used by Rpn4 in controlling target genes and its functioning as a regulator of the cellular response to stress remain largely unclear. The aim of this work was to determine the Rpn4 domains required to ensure cell resistance to stress. It was shown that the N-terminal and central regions of the protein contain sites required for resistance to all types of stresses. The putative nuclear localization signal does not affect the functioning of Rpn4. Unexpectedly, a protein with the deletion of both zinc finger motifs that form the DNA-binding domain provides yeast resistance to oxidative stress and cycloheximide. Moreover, we showed that Rpn4 can be recruited to the promoter regions of the regulated genes even if they do not contain its binding sites. Based on these data, it can be assumed that Rpn4 is involved in gene regulation and the cellular response to stress due to protein-protein interactions.
