Transcription factor that plays a role in the activation of archaeal genes transcribed by RNA polymerase. Facilitates transcription initiation by enhancing TATA-box recognition by TATA-box-binding protein (Tbp), and transcription factor B (Tfb) and RNA polymerase recruitment. Not absolutely required for transcription in vitro, but particularly important in cases where Tbp or Tfb function is not optimal. It dynamically alters the nucleic acid-binding properties of RNA polymerases by stabilizing the initiation complex and destabilizing elongation complexes. Seems to translocate with the RNA polymerase following initiation and acts by binding to the non template strand of the transcription bubble in elongation complexes.2 Publications

<p>The checksum is a form of redundancy check that is calculated from the sequence. It is useful for tracking sequence updates.</p> <p>It should be noted that while, in theory, two different sequences could have the same checksum value, the likelihood that this would happen is extremely low.</p> <p>However UniProtKB may contain entries with identical sequences in case of multiple genes (paralogs).</p> <p>The checksum is computed as the sequence 64-bit Cyclic Redundancy Check value (CRC64) using the generator polynomial: x<sup>64</sup> + x<sup>4</sup> + x<sup>3</sup> + x + 1. The algorithm is described in the ISO 3309 standard. </p> <p class="publication">Press W.H., Flannery B.P., Teukolsky S.A. and Vetterling W.T.<br /> <strong>Cyclic redundancy and other checksums</strong><br /> <a href="http://www.nrbook.com/b/bookcpdf.php">Numerical recipes in C 2nd ed., pp896-902, Cambridge University Press (1993)</a>)</p> Checksum:iF7507AF9F3353763
