Concept

Problem: In eukaryotes, general transcription factors: a. inhibit RNA polymerase binding to the promoter and begin transcribing. b. bind to other proteins or to a sequence element within the promoter called the TATA box. c. bind to sequences just after the start site of transcription. d. usually lead to a high level of transcription even without additional specific transcription factors. e. are required for the expression of specific protein-encoding genes.
