Trends in Microbiology, 2005      Archaeal transcriptional regulation – variation on a bacterial theme?
Stephen D. Bell
Trends in Microbiology, 2005

There is now an increasing body of data available on the DNA-binding properties of several putative transcriptional regulators in the Archaeal domain of life. The evidence points to simple models of promoter occlusion or facilitated recruitment of basal machinery for repressors and activators, respectively. However, little is known about the co-factor requirements, in vivo mechanisms and targets of many of these regulators. It is anticipated that the application of post-genomic technologies will begin to shed light on this fascinating area.
