The effect of Integration Host Factor (IHF) on kinetic parameters of pL promoter

Range Table - link
Organism Bacteriophage Lambda
Reference Giladi H, Gottesman M, Oppenheim AB. Integration host factor stimulates the phage lambda pL promoter. J Mol Biol. 1990 May 5 213(1):109-21.PubMed ID2140136
Method Researchers report the stimulation of pL activity by IHF in vivo and in vitro using DNAse footprinting and an abortive initiation assay (Mcclure et al 1978, PMID: 363712).
Comments The integration host factor of E. coli (IHF) is a small dimeric protein that bends DNA at the specific sequences to which it binds. It supports several cellular reactions involving the formation of higher-ordered structures, such as transposition, initiation of DNA replication, and bacteriophage lambda site-specific recombination.
