Functional analysis of the papilloma virus E2 trans-activator in Saccharomyces cerevisiae.

The papilloma virus E2 transcriptional trans-activator is representative of a class of transcriptional modulators that activate transcription through direct binding to cis-acting DNA sequences. In this study we measured the capacity for this mammalian virus factor to function in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. When expressed in the yeast, the bovine papilloma… CONTINUE READING
