The regulation and inhibition of P-TEFb

Abstract:

Correct regulation of transcription is essential for maintaining a healthy cellular state. During transcription RNA polymerase II (Pol II) proceeds in a regulated manner through several transitions to ensure appropriate control of synthesis and enable correct processing of the pre-RNA. Shortly after initiation Pol II is caused to pause by the binding of factors, DSIF and NELF. To enable transition of Pol II into the elongation phase CDK9/cyclin T phosphorylates the C-terminal domain (CTD)...
