An N-terminal fragment of Xenopus TFIIIA, containing domains 1-3, (TF 3), was expressed in E. coli. High yields of recombinant zinc finger protein was isolated, and its DNA binding activity for the internal control region (ICR) of the Xenopus 5S RNA gene, was demonstrated by band-shift experiments and DNase I footprinting analysis. TF 3 protects 20 bp of(More)
We compared two gain measures: One, defined as angle/angle (A/A) gain, is the ratio between the angle subtended by displacement of the cursor and the corresponding angle of head extension/flexion or rotation. The alternative measure, defined as displacement/angle (D/A) gain, is the ratio between the linear displacement of the cursor on the screen and the(More)
Recombinant zinc finger proteins corresponding to N-terminal fragments of Xenopus laevis transcription factor IIIA (TFIIIA) comprising three, four and five fingers produced in Escherichia coli as cleavable hybrid proteins were shown to form specific stoichiometric complexes with DNA fragments containing the internal control region (ICR) of a 5 S RNA gene.(More)
It has recently been shown that the non-formylated initiator Met-tRNAfMet from E. coli can form a stable ternary complex with the elongation factor EF-Tu and GTP. Using the protection of EF-Tu:GTP against spontaneous hydrolysis of the aminoacylester bond of Met-tRNAfMet, we confirm these results, and show that the protection is specific for the(More)
We report studies in vitro of the interaction between non-formylated initiator Met-tRNA(fMet) and 70S ribosomes. The binding of Met-tRNA(fMet) to ribosomes carrying fMet-tRNA(fMet) in the P-site is strongly stimulated by elongation factor EF-Tu:GTP in the presence of (AUG)3. The enzymatically bound Met-tRNA(fMet) does not react with puromycin. The bound(More)
