Cox JM, et al. (1997) Bidirectional binding of the TATA box binding protein to the TATA box. Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 94(25):13475-80
Abstract: By selective attachment of a DNA cleavage agent to specific residues in the yeast TATA box binding protein (yTBP), we demonstrate that, in solution, yTBP binds to the TATA boxes of both the adenovirus major late promoter and the yeast CYC1 promoter with only a modest preference in orientation and binds well to several overlapping binding sites. The general factors TFIIA and TFIIB each increase the rotational and translational selectivity of yTBP but are not sufficient, at least individually, to confer a unique polarity to the preinitiation complex. We conclude that TBP alone cannot define the productive orientation of general factor assembly on a promoter.
