Assembly of enhanceosomes requires architectural proteins to facilitate the DNA conformational changes accompanying cooperative binding of activators to a regulatory sequence. The architectural protein HMG-1 has been proposed to bind DNA in a sequence-independent manner, yet, paradoxically, it facilitates specific DNA binding reactions in vitro. To investigate the mechanism of specificity we explored the effect of HMG-1 on binding of the Epstein-Barr virus activator ZEBRA to a natural… CONTINUE READING
