Concept

Problem: In eukaryotic cells, promoter consensus sequences are recognized by accessory proteins that recruit a specific RNA polymerase. Which of the following types of accessory proteins serve this purpose?A. Single strand-binding proteinsB. enhancerC. general transcription factorsD. transcription activatorsE. transcription repressors

FREE Expert Solution

In eukaryotes, the initiation of transcription requires proteins that would attach to the TATA box of the in the promoter region. Additional proteins bind to the DNA along with the RNA polymerase needed for transcription. These proteins constitute the transcription initiation complex.
