Characterization of the Rhodobacter capsulatus housekeeping RNA polymerase. In vitro transcription of photosynthesis and other genes.

Abstract

To begin to characterize biochemically the transcriptional activation systems in photosynthetic bacteria, the Rhodobacter capsulatus RNA polymerase (RNAP) that contains the sigma70 factor (R. capsulatus RNAP/sigma70) was purified and characterized using two classical sigma70 type promoters, the bacteriophage T7A1 and the RNA I promoters. Transcription from… (More)
