Structure of RNA polymerase II pre-initiation complex at 2.9 Å defines initial DNA opening

Authors Schilbach S, Aibara S, Dienemann Chr, Grabbe F, Cramer P Journal Cell Citation Cell. 2021 Jun 10:S0092-8674(21)00629-2. Abstract Transcription initiation requires assembly of the RNA polymerase II (Pol II) pre-initiation complex (PIC) and opening of promoter DNA. Here, we present the long-sought high-resolution structure of the yeast PIC and

Rosalind Franklin and the Advent of Molecular Biology

Authors Cramer P Journal Cell Citation Cell. 2020 Aug 20;182(4):787-789. Abstract Rosalind Franklin provided the key data for deriving the double helix structure of DNA. The English chemist also pioneered structural studies of colloids, viruses, and RNA. To celebrate the 100th anniversary of Franklin’s birth, I summarize her work, which

Structural Basis of Poxvirus Transcription: Transcribing and Capping Vaccinia Complexes

Authors Hillen HS, Bartuli J, Grimm C, Dienemann C, Bedenk K, Szalay AA, Fischer U, Cramer P Journal Cell Citation Cell. 2019 Dec 12;179(7):1525-1536.e12. Abstract Poxviruses use virus-encoded multisubunit RNA polymerases (vRNAPs) and RNA-processing factors to generate m(7)G-capped mRNAs in the host cytoplasm. In the accompanying paper, we report structures

Eukaryotic Transcription Turns 50

Authors Cramer P Journal Cell Citation Cell. 2019 Oct 31;179(4):808-812. Abstract This year we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the discovery of the three eukaryotic RNA polymerases. Ever since this seminal event in 1969, researchers have investigated the intricate mechanisms of gene transcription with great dedication. The transcription field continues
