xUBF and Rib 1 are both required for formation of a stable polymerase I promoter complex in X. laevis.


We show that three protein fractions are required for accurate transcription initiation at a Xenopus laevis ribosomal gene promoter in vitro: RNA polymerase I, Rib1 and xUBF. The Rib1 and xUBF fractions are both necessary and sufficient for formation of a stable initiation complex. The xUBF fraction can be completely replaced by recombinant xUBF. We also… (More)
