Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The basic components required for eukaryotic gene transcription have been highly conserved in evolution. Structural and functional homology has now been documented among promoters, promoter factors, regulatory proteins, and RNA polymerases from eukaryotes as diverse as yeast and mammals. The ability of these proteins and DNA sequences to function across phylogenetic boundaries demonstrates that common molecular mechanisms underlie gene control in all eukaryotic cells, and provides the basis for powerful new approaches to the study of eukaryotic gene transcription.
