Cloning of the mammalian basic transcription factors serves as a major step in understanding the mechanism of transcription initiation. The 62-kilodalton component (p62) of one of these transcription factors, BTF2 was cloned and overexpressed. A monoclonal antibody to this polypeptide inhibited transcription in vitro. Immunoaffinity experiments demonstrated that the 62-kilodalton component is closely associated with the other polypeptides present in the BTF2 factor. Sequence similarity suggests that BTF2 may be the human counterpart of RNA polymerase II initiation factor b from yeast.
