    Simple biochemical features underlie transcriptional activation domain diversity and dynamic, fuzzy binding to Mediator

    Adrian L Sanborn et al.
    Transcriptional activation domains achieve rapid, dynamic, specific interaction with Mediator through binding of an unstructured peptide to multiple hydrophobic surfaces without particular amino acid side chain interactions.

    Crl activates transcription by stabilizing active conformation of the master stress transcription initiation factor

    Juncao Xu et al.
    The cryo-EM structure of Escherichia coli Crl–TAC reveals the mechanism of DNA-contact-independent transcription activation.

    YAP and TAZ are transcriptional co-activators of AP-1 proteins and STAT3 during breast cellular transformation

    Lizhi He et al.
    YAP and TAZ, the ultimate targets of the Hippo signaling pathway, are transcriptional co-activators of AP-1 proteins and STAT3 through which they are important for breast cellular transformation.

    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 Hippo effector Yorkie activates transcription by interacting with a histone methyltransferase complex through Ncoa6

    Yun Qing et al.
    Elucidating the molecular mechanism by which the Hippo signaling effector Yorkie (Yki) functions as a transcriptional coactivator in growth control reveals the importance of a histone-modifying enzyme for this process.

    GAF is essential for zygotic genome activation and chromatin accessibility in the early Drosophila embryo

    Marissa M Gaskill et al.
    Following fertilization, the pioneering transcription factors GAGA factor (GAF) and Zelda are independently required to reprogram the zygotic genome of Drosophila and activate the first wave of gene expression.

    An order-to-disorder structural switch activates the FoxM1 transcription factor

    Aimee H Marceau et al.
    Structural and biochemical analysis reveals that two intrinsically disordered domains of the transcription factor FoxM1 co-fold to form an autoinhibited conformation, which is disrupted by a specific activating phosphorylation event.

    Functional instability allows access to DNA in longer transcription Activator-Like effector (TALE) arrays

    Kathryn Geiger-Schuller et al.
    Single molecule DNA-binding trajectories and deterministic modeling analyses demonstrate a functional role for high energy partly folded states in Transcription Activator-Like Effectors that could improve future TALEN design.

    C. elegans GLP-1/Notch activates transcription in a probability gradient across the germline stem cell pool

    ChangHwan Lee et al.
    Analyzing the readout of Notch signaling with single RNA precision reveals that active transcription sites are the most accurate measure of Notch-dependent transcriptional activation.

    Direct observation of frequency modulated transcription in single cells using light activation

    Daniel R Larson et al.
    Steroid hormone receptors control the expression of their target genes through a digital on-off switch in individual cells, which leads to an analogue dose-response relationship at the level of the whole organism.
