Early-B-cell factor (EBF) is a nuclear protein that recognizes a functionally important sequence in the promoter of the mb-1 gene. Like the mb-1 gene, which encodes an immunoglobulin-associated protein, EBF is specifically expressed in the early stages of B-lymphocyte differentiation. We purified EBF by sequence-specific DNA affinity chromatography and(More)
In bacteria, RNA polymerase (RNAP) initiates transcription by synthesizing short transcripts that are either released or extended to allow RNAP to escape from the promoter. The mechanism of initial transcription is unclear due to the presence of transient intermediates and molecular heterogeneity. Here, we studied initial transcription on a lac promoter(More)
