Abstract: Abstract: The upstream binding factor, UBF, is an RNA polymerase I transcription factor which contains multiple DNA binding domains and a novel protein dimerization domain. Active UBF forms homodimers in vivo through the intramolecular interactions of its dimerization domain, which spans a hundred amino-terminal residues. In the presence of both UBF dimerization domain and its immediately adjacent lysine-rich basic DNA binding domain, the E. coli expressed recombinant polypeptide, dbUBF (dimerization plus basic motifs of UBF), forms homodimers in vitro and binds to double-stranded DNA nonselectively. In gel retardation assay, dbUBF dimers make multiple shift-ladders corresponding to numerous protein dimer-DNA complexes. The UBF dimerization domain contains multiple helical structures, as predicted by EMBO-PHD program. Most of hydrophobic residues in the dimerization domain are confined in the hydrophobic phase of these hypothetic helices. Mutating these hydrophobic residues to glutamate prohibits dbUBF association and gives a different shift pattern in gel retardation assay. The results we present here argue that UBF association is largely exerted by the hydrophobic interactions between the multiple helices to bring two molecules together.
