Abstract: Cells carefully modulate the rate of rRNA transcription in order to prevent an overinvestment in ribosome synthesis under less favorable nutritional conditions. In mammals, growth-dependent regulation of RNA polymerase I (Pol I) transcription is mediated by TIF-IA, an essential initiation factor that is active in extracts from growing but not starved or cycloheximide-treated mammalian cells. Here we report the molecular cloning and functional characterization of recombinant TIF-IA, which turns out to be the mammalian homolog of the yeast factor Rrn3p. We demonstrate that TIF-IA interacts with Pol I in the absence of template DNA, augments Pol I transcription in vivo and rescues transcription in extracts from growth-arrested cells in vitro.
