High impact information on Polr2j

  • By means of the yeast two-hybrid system using the 40-kDa subunit of mouse RNA polymerase I, mRPA40, as the bait, we isolated a mouse cDNA which encoded a protein with significant homology in amino acid sequence to the 12.5-kDa subunit of Saccharomyces cerevisiae RNA polymerase II, B12.5 (RPB11) [1].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of Polr2j

  • Based on sodium dodecyl sulphate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (SDS-PAGE) and Western blot results, purified recombinant caltrin-His was ascertained to be approximately 14.5kDa [2].
