The molecular basis of the control of ribosomal RNA gene expression



The molecular basis of the control of ribosomal RNA gene expression



Annual Report of the Plant Breeding Institute 1984: 76-78



Comparisons of nucleotide sequences of 130 bp repeats in DNA of ribosomal RNA genes in wheat, Xenopus, mouse, rat and Drosophila showed that the repeats are able to bind several molecules of polymerase I, and perhaps other proteins, for the transcription of ribosomal RNA genes. Hence, upstream from where transcription is initiated, there are many sequences that cansequester and assemble transcription complexes to aid transcription of the nearby gene.
