The yeast GAL11 protein binds to the transcription factor IIE through GAL11 regions essential for its in vivo function.


The GAL11 gene encodes an auxiliary transcription factor required for full expression of many genes in yeast. The GAL11-encoded protein (Gal11p) has recently been shown to copurify with the holoenzyme of RNA polymerase II. Here we report that Gal11p stimulates basal transcription in a reconstituted transcription system composed of recombinant or highly… (More)
