Název práce: Cracking the CTD code

Školitel: doc. Mgr. Richard Štefl, Ph.D.

Oficiální zadání:
The concept of the CTD code that specifies the position of RNAPII in the transcriptional cycle and thus recruits specific processing factors, was suggested almost a decade ago. However, how the C-terminal domain (CTD) of RNA polymerase II recruits, activates, and displaces appropriate processing factors in coordination with the transcription cycle, remains obscure. Association of specific factors with the CTD is dictated by different post-translational modification patterns and conformational changes in the CTD. To reveal the CTD code, a combination of structural, biochemical, and genetic methods will be used to study important complexes of the CTD with CTD code reader proteins. The project will help to decipher the basic rules that govern the readout of the CTD code.
