In the autoinhibited state, sigma-70 factor domain-1 packs closely together with sigma-70 factor domains-2 and -4, contrary to the extended conformation that is seen when the protein is part of the RNA polymerase holoenzyme.By similarity
The sigma-70 factor domain-2 mediates sequence-specific interaction with the -10 element in promoter DNA, and plays an important role in melting the double-stranded DNA and the formation of the transcription bubble. The sigma-70 factor domain-2 mediates interaction with the RNA polymerase subunits RpoB and RpoC (PubMed:11931761 and PubMed:22136875).
The sigma-70 factor domain-4 contains a helix-turn-helix (H-T-H) motif that mediates interaction with the -35 element in promoter DNA. The domain also mediates interaction with the RNA polymerase subunit RpoA. Interactions between sigma-70 factor domain-4 and anti-sigma factors prevents interaction of sigma factors with the RNA polymerase catalytic core (PubMed:11931761).1 Publication

<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:i5D8ACF5713DE55AD
