How does TBP bind to DNA?

TBP binds with the negatively charged phosphates in the DNA backbone through positively charged lysine and arginine amino acid residues. The sharp bend in the DNA is produced through projection of four bulky phenylalanine residues into the minor groove.

What does Tau Beta Pi do?

Tau Beta Pi chapters and members are an important part of their local community. The Association supports and promotes opportunities to give back and be active in local communities through our K-12 MindSET Program and Greater Interest in Government project grants.

Does Tfiih bind to TATA box?

There are six types of transcription factors that participate in the formation of the PIC: TFIIA, TFIIB, TFIID, TFIIE, TFIIF, TFIIH. TFIID is the first one to bind to the TATA box basal promoter region of DNA and consists of a TATA binding protein (TBP) subunit and TBP-associated factors (TAFs).

What does Tfiib bind to?

TFIIB carries out at least two functions: it interacts directly with the TATA-binding protein (TBP) and helps to recruit RNA polymerase II into the initiation complex. The sequence of TFIIB reveals a potential zinc-binding domain and an imperfect duplication of approximately 70 amino acids.

What is the terminator sequence?

A sequence in DNA that signals termination of transcription to RNA Polymerase. This should not be confused with terminator codons that are the stopping signal for translation.

Does the TATA box get transcribed?

The TATA box is considered a non-coding DNA sequence (also known as a cis-regulatory element). Transcription is initiated at the TATA box in TATA-containing genes. The TATA box is the binding site of the TATA-binding protein (TBP) and other transcription factors in some eukaryotic genes.
