One class of transcriptional activation domains stimulates the concerted binding of TFIIA and TFIID to promoter DNA. To test whether this DA-complex assembly activity contributes significantly to the overall mechanism of activation in vivo, we analyzed mutants of the 38-amino-acid residue VP16C activation subdomain from herpes simplex virus. An excellent(More)
The VP16 protein of herpes simplex virus is a potent transcriptional activator of the viral immediate early genes. The transcriptional activation region of VP16 can be divided into two functional subregions, here designated VP16N (comprising amino acids 413-456) and VP16C (amino acids 450-490). Assays of VP16C mutants resulting from both random and(More)
