The bacteriophage N4-coded single-stranded DNA-binding protein (N4SSB) is the transcriptional activator of Escherichia coli RNA polymerase at N4 late promoters



The bacteriophage N4-coded single-stranded DNA-binding protein (N4SSB) is the transcriptional activator of Escherichia coli RNA polymerase at N4 late promoters



Journal of Molecular Biology 246(4): 461-471



Transcription of the 72kb linear double-stranded DNA genome of coliphage N4 is carried out by the sequential activity of three different RNA polymerases. Early and middle viral transcripts are synthesized by two phage-coded RNA polymerases while late transcription is carried out by the Escherichia coli sigma-70-RNA polymerase.
