Transcription of the Mu mom operon requires activation by the phage gene product, C, a site-specific DNA binding protein. Previous in vivo and in vitro footprinting studies showed that Escherichia coli RNA polymerase (Esigma70=RNAP) bound the wild-type (wt) mom promoter (Pmom) region in the absence of C; this site, now designated momP2 (-11 to -64), is… CONTINUE READING
