S. cerevisiae TFIIIB is the transcription initiation factor proper of RNA polymerase III, while TFIIIA and TFIIIC are assembly factors
The S. cerevisiae RNA polymerase III (pol III) transcription factor TFIIIB binds to DNA upstream of the transcription start site of the SUP4 tRNA(Tyr) gene in a TFIIIC-dependent reaction and to theExpand

The role of the TATA-binding protein in the assembly and function of the multisubunit yeast RNA polymerase III transcription factor, TFIIIB
The Saccharomyces cerevisiae RNA polymerase III transcription factor (TF)IIIB has been assembled from three components. An assembly pathway of these polypeptides, which specifies their interactions,Expand

Activation of archaeal transcription by recruitment of the TATA-binding protein
The hyperthermophilic archaeon Methanococcus jannaschii encodes two putative transcription regulators, Ptr1 and Ptr2, that are members of the Lrp/AsnC family of bacterial transcription regulators. InExpand

Mechanism of transcription through the nucleosome by eukaryotic RNA polymerase.
Nucleosomes, the nucleohistone subunits of chromatin, are present on transcribed eukaryotic genes but do not prevent transcription. It is shown here that the large yeast RNA polymerase IIIExpand

Transcription factor IIIB generates extended DNA interactions in RNA polymerase III transcription complexes on tRNA genes.
Transcription complexes that assemble on tRNA genes in a crude Saccharomyces cerevisiae cell extract extend over the entire transcription unit and approximately 40 base pairs of contiguousExpand

Archaeal transcription and its regulators.
The relatively complex archaeal RNA polymerases are constructed along eukaryotic lines, and require two initiation factors for promoter recognition and specific transcription that are homologues ofExpand

Crystal structure of a transcription factor IIIB core interface ternary complex
Transcription factor IIIB (TFIIIB), consisting of the TATA-binding protein (TBP), TFIIB-related factor (Brf1) and Bdp1, is a central component in basal and regulated transcription by RNA polymeraseExpand

Alternative outcomes in assembly of promoter complexes: the roles of TBP and a flexible linker in placing TFIIIB on tRNA genes.
Saccharomyces cerevisiae transcription factor (TF) IIIB, a TATA-binding protein (TBP)-containing multisubunit factor, recruits RNA polymerase (Pol) III for multiple rounds of transcription. TFIIIC isExpand

The Brf and TATA-binding Protein Subunits of the RNA Polymerase III Transcription Factor IIIB Mediate Position-specific Integration of the Gypsy-like Element, Ty3*
Ty3 integrates into the transcription initiation sites of genes transcribed by RNA polymerase III. It is known that transcription factors (TF) IIIB and IIIC are important for recruiting Ty3 to itsExpand
