Eukaryote-regulatory and transcribed regions 2 different events regulatory-initiate transcription proximal=closer to transcribed part distal=farther from transcribed part control elements-specific DNA sequences recognized by specific proteins, which help in positioning RNA polymerase distal and proximal control elements- control elements-sequences recognized by proteins which will help RNA polymerase TATA Box-control element consisting of TATA sequence, which will recognize the TATA binding protein, one of the transcription proteins which will be positioned in the proximal part and will help the RNA polymerase Transcription factors -other proteins which will be associated with the TATA box (TF2) Transcription activation factors (TAFs) -another set of proteins Transcription initiation complex-composed of TATA box, transcription factors, transcription initiation factors, and RNA pol II (Only in the proximal part) Transcription in eukaryotes done by RNA pol II Distal region -binds specific proteins called
