Abstract


Rpc82 is a TFIIE-related subunit of the eukaryotic RNA polymerase III (pol III) complex. Rpc82 contains four winged-helix (WH) domains and a C-terminal coiled-coil domain. Structural resolution of the pol III complex indicated that Rpc82 anchors on the clamp domain of the pol III cleft to interact with the duplex DNA downstream of the transcription bubble. However, whether Rpc82 interacts with a transcription factor is still not known. Here, we report that a structurally disordered insertion in the third WH domain of Rpc82 is important for cell growth and in vitro transcription activity. Site-specific photo-crosslinking analysis indicated that the WH3 insertion interacts with the TFIIB-related transcription factor Brf1 within the pre-initiation complex (PIC). Moreover, crosslinking and hydroxyl radical probing analyses revealed Rpc82 interactions with the upstream DNA and the protrusion and wall domains of the pol III cleft. Our genetic and biochemical analyses thus provide new molecular insights into the function of Rpc82 in pol III transcription.
