Escherichia coli protein Rho is required for the factor-dependent transcription termination by an RNA polymerase and is essential for the viability of the cell. It is a homohexameric protein that recognizes and binds preferably to C-rich sites in the transcribed RNA. Once bound to RNA, it utilizes RNA-dependent ATPase activity and subsequently(More)
Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is the most common malignant brain tumor in adults with a dismal prognosis. Current therapy of surgical removal combined with Temozolomide (TMZ) and radiation therapy only slightly prolongs the survival of GBM patients. Thus, it is essential to elucidate mechanism underlying its highly malignant properties in order to develop(More)
The transcription termination factor Rho of Escherichia coli is a RNA binding protein which can translocate along the RNA and unwind the RNA:DNA hybrid using the RNA-dependent ATPase activity. In order to investigate the involvement of each of these functions in releasing RNA from the elongation complex, we have isolated different termination defective(More)
Transcription antitermination is an important mechanism that can control regulation of gene expression. The N protein of lambdoid phages modifies the transcription elongation complex (EC) and helps it to overcome downstream terminators. In this modified EC, the C-terminal domain of N makes specific interactions with RNA polymerase (RNAP). The interacting(More)
