Catabolite activator protein and RNA polymerasePDB ID: 1LB2
CAP binds to DNA and enhances the binding and initiation of RNA polymerase. This structure includes CAP and a small domain from RNA polymerase, both bound to a sharply-bent piece of DNA.
Structural basis of transcription activation: the CAP-alpha CTD-DNA complex.
