Transcription activation of yeast ribosomal protein genes is mediated through homologous, 12-nucleotide-long and, in general, duplicated upstream promoter elements (HOMOL1 and RPG, referred to as UASrpg). As shown previously, a yeast protein factor, TUF, interacts specifically with these conserved boxes in the 5'-flanking sequences of the elongation factor genes TEF1 and TEF2 and the ribosomal protein gene RP51A. We have now extended our studies of TUF-UASrpg binding by analysing--using… CONTINUE READING
