Abstract

The papillomavirus E2 protein functions as an enhancer-binding factor to promote transcription in mammalian cells. We found that one copy of the E2 binding site acted as an E2 protein-dependent upstream activating sequence in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Additional copies of the binding motif further augmented transcription. These results imply that the E2 protein functionally interacts with highly conserved transcriptional elements.
