Transcription of genes coding for the small nuclear RNAs (snRNAs) is dependent upon a unique transcription factor known as the small nuclear RNA-activating protein complex (SNAPc). SNAPc binds to an essential proximal sequence element located about 40-65 base pairs upstream of the snRNA transcription start site. In the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster,(More)
