A factor that stimulates RNA synthesis by purified RNA polymerase.

Abstract

A protein factor, partially purified from E. coli, can stimulate some 30- to 50-fold the transcription of DNA by purified RNA polymerase. Evidence is presented suggesting that this stimulatory factor (designated M factor) exerts its effect before the RNA synthesis is initiated. The M factor is prepared from a crude ribosome fraction, but it does not require… (More)
