In our most recent paper, we showed how RNA binding to CBP could modulate CBPs enzymatic activity to control histone acetylation and gene expression. The model explains how localised transcription of eRNAs could tailor the activity of sub-populations of CBP bound at enhancers, leading to functional diversity in enhancer activity.

Organisation of an activator bound RNA polymerase holoenzyme

Daniel Bose, Tillmann Pape, Patricia C. Burrows, Mathieu Rappas, Sivaramesh Wigneshweraraj, Martin Buck, and Xiaodong Zhang. Molecular Cell, 32 (3), 337-46 (2008). PMID 18995832.

Part of a long-running collaboration with Prof. Martin Buck FRS, we used cryo-EM to describe the mechanism of the alternate sigma factor, sigma-54, in bacteria. When bound to RNA polymerase (RNAP), Sigma-54 needs to interact with a special activator protein bound at a distal enhancer-like element to initiate transcription. These activators use energy from ATP hydrolysis to re-model RNAP/sigma-54 to initiate transcription, a process that we visualised for the first time.

Structure of the cellular RNA polymerase and transcription elongation complex

Brianna J. Klein*, Daniel Bose*, Kevin J. Baker, Zahirah M. Yusoff, Xiaodong Zhang, and Katsuhiko S. Murakami. Proc Natl Acad Sci USA, 108 (2), 546-50 (2011). PMID 21187417.

In collaboration with Katsuhiko Murakami at Penn State, we produced the first structural description of how the Spt4/5 transcription elongation factor interacts with RNA polymerase.

Functional role for an Arp8 dimer within the INO80 Chromatin-Remodelling Complex

Matheshwaran Saravanan*, Jochen Wuerges*, Daniel Bose*, Elizabeth A. McCormack, Nicola J. Cook, Xiaodong Zhang and Dale B. Wigley. PNAS, 109 (51), 20883-8 (2012), PMID 23213201.

In collaboration with Prof. Dale Wigley FRS, we carried out structural and functional characterisations of the INO80 chromatin re-modelling complex, including the actin-relate protein Arp 8 bound to a nucleosome, an early structure of nucleosome-bound proteins solved using cryo-EM.
