Employing an exonuclease III protection assay we detected a protein in crude HeLa nuclear extracts binding, with apparent sequence specificity, to molecular ends of adenovirus type 2 (Ad2) DNA. This protein, designated nuclear factor IV (NFIV), was purified to homogeneity and was shown to be a hetero-dimer of 72,000 and 84,000 Mr. Binding to terminal Ad2(More)
The Adenovirus DNA-binding protein (DBP) binds to single-stranded (ss) DNA as well as to double-stranded (ds) DNA and forms multimeric protein-DNA complexes with both. Gel retardation assays indicate rapid complex formation for both DNAs. DBP rapidly dissociates from dsDNA, indicating a dynamic equilibrium, whereas the ssDNA-DBP complex is much more stable.(More)
