Interaction between the cyclic AMP receptor protein and DNA. Conformational studies.

The binding of the cyclic adenosine 3',5' monophosphate receptor protein (CRP or CAP) of Escherichia coli to non-specific DNA and to a specific lac recognition sequence has been investigated by circular dichroism (c.d.) spectroscopy. The effect of cAMP and cGMP on the co-operative non-specific binding was also studied. For the non-specific binding in the… CONTINUE READING
