BACKGROUND Eukaryotic RNA polymerase II is composed of more than 10 polypeptide chains. The minimum and essential subunits for RNA synthesis have not yet been identified. Toward this ultimate goal, we analysed the topological arrangement of the putative subunits. Here we report a subunit-subunit contact network involving subunit 5 of the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe RNA polymerase II. RESULTS The rpb5+ gene encoding subunit 5 of RNA polymerase II was cloned from the fission yeast… CONTINUE READING
