Specific cellular proteins bind to critical promoter sequences of the adenovirus early EIIa promoter.


As an approach to the identification of essential factors required for specific expression of the adenovirus type 2 EIIaE early (EIIaE) promoter, an in vitro system was established. Under appropriate conditions, using crude extracts of non-infected HeLa cells, efficient and accurate EIIaE expression has been reproduced. As in vivo, this transcription was… (More)
