    TBP/TFIID-dependent activation of MyoD target genes in skeletal muscle cells

    Barbora Malecova et al.
    Genetic and biochemical evidence shows that the basal transcription machinery of muscle cells invariably relies on TBP/TFIID because TBP2 is not expressed in muscle cells, and thus resolves a longstanding issue raised by previous conflicting data.

    Architecture of TAF11/TAF13/TBP complex suggests novel regulation properties of general transcription factor TFIID

    Kapil Gupta et al.
    Integrative structural biology reveals a novel complex comprising the TATA-box-binding protein, TBP, and two subunits, TAF11 and TAF13, of General Transcription Factor TFIID, suggesting a new regulatory state in TFIID function in RNA polymerase II transcription initiation.

    Two roles for the yeast transcription coactivator SAGA and a set of genes redundantly regulated by TFIID and SAGA

    Rafal Donczew et al.
    The transcription coactivators SAGA and TFIID have redundant function at a subset of yeast genes while SAGA also contributes to transcription of all genes through regulation of chromatin modifications.

    The complete structure of the human TFIIH core complex

    Basil J Greber et al.
    The structure of human transcription factor IIH, a critical DNA repair and transcription initiation factor, has been determined by cryo-electron microscopy.

    Angiopoietin receptor Tie2 is required for vein specification and maintenance via regulating COUP-TFII

    Man Chu et al.
    Analyses with genetically engineered mouse models in combination with biochemical approaches reveal a crucial role of the receptor tyrosine kinase Tie2 mediated signals in venogenesis via an Akt mediated regulation of COUP-TFII protein stabilization.

    Archaeal TFEα/β is a hybrid of TFIIE and the RNA polymerase III subcomplex hRPC62/39

    Fabian Blombach et al.
    An archaeal basal transcription factor containing an iron-sulphur cluster sheds light on the evolution of transcription machineries in archaea and eukaryotes.

    Chemical perturbation of an intrinsically disordered region of TFIID distinguishes two modes of transcription initiation

    Zhengjian Zhang et al.
    An inorganic tin oxochloride cluster specifically binds to an intrinsically disordered, histidine-rich, low complexity protein region and arrests de novo transcription initiation without affecting reinitiation.

    TAF4, a subunit of transcription factor II D, directs promoter occupancy of nuclear receptor HNF4A during post-natal hepatocyte differentiation

    Daniil Alpern et al.
    Physical and functional interactions between HNF4A and TAF4 coordinate HNF4A genomic occupancy with pre-initiation complex formation to activate post-natal hepatocyte gene expression.

    Comparison of transcriptional initiation by RNA polymerase II across eukaryotic species

    Natalia Petrenko, Kevin Struhl
    Although the preinitiation complex for transcriptional initiation by RNA polymerase II contains highly conserved general transcription factors, there are kinetic and compositional differences in the initiation process among eukaryotic species.
