Higher-order nucleoprotein complexes in transcription: analogies with site-specific recombination.


Regulation of transcription involves the assembly of multiprotein complexes at enhancers and promoters. Interactions between adjacent and non-adjacent DNA-binding proteins can augment the specificity and stability of multi-component nucleoprotein complexes. Recently, several proteins have been identified that can function as 'architectural' elements in the… (More)
