Abstract

The CR3 activation domain of the human adenovirus E1A protein stimulates transcription by forming protein-protein interactions with DNA sequence-specific binding factors and components of the TFIID complex. Here, we demonstrate that CR3 can complex with the extreme C-terminal 105 amino acids of the human TATA box binding-factor-associated protein, hTAF(II)135. Furthermore, the C-terminal region of hTAF(II)135 can block transcriptional stimulation from an E1A-inducible promoter in vivo. This ability of the C terminus of hTAF(II)135 to bind CR3 and to inhibit E1A-inducible activation is highly specific. These results demonstrate for the first time that a discrete fragment of a mammalian TBP-associated factor which targets a specific activator can impair the stimulation of transcription.
