    ..In addition, it summarizes the evidence indicating that IHF can stimulate transcription via a direct interaction with RNA polymerase and explores the possibility that the asymmetry of the IHF protein might reflect such an interaction. ..

    ..Another open reading frame (prp) was revealed downstream from pheT which was identified as himA, the gene for the alpha subunit of the integration host factor. ..

    ..All three sites show low binding affinity to IHF suggesting that autoregulation can take place only after sufficiently high levels of IHF accumulate in the cell. ..
