The second enhancer (enhancer II) of hepatitis B virus is functionally liver specific. Located within an open reading frame of the virus and immediately upstream of the initiation sites of viral major transcripts, enhancer II furnishes a unique model for use in investigating the structure and function of an enhancer. In this study, two functional constituents, a 23-bp box-alpha and a 12-bp box-beta, are identified as being both necessary and sufficient for enhancer II function. Examination of… CONTINUE READING
