Examination of mammalian basic helix-loop-helix transcription factors using a yeast one-hybrid system.

Basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH) transcription factors play diverse roles in controlling many developmental events. Although a great deal is understood about how bHLH factors activate gene transcription via E-box DNA consensus sequences, studies of bHLH factor function in higher eukaryotes often have been hindered by the presence of multiple family members. As… CONTINUE READING
