    ..Strikingly, all transcription factors tested (P-TEFb, Spt5, Spt6, and TFIIS) and RNA-processing factor CstF50 exited the body of the gene with kinetics indistinguishable from that of Pol II...

    ..We use chromatin immunoprecipitation to show that Symplekin and CPSF73, but not CstF50, cotranscriptionally associate with histone genes. Depletion of SLBP recruits CstF50 to histone genes...

    ..Together with previous data on the structure of CstF-77, homodimerization of CstF-50 N-terminal domain supports the model in which the functional state of CstF is a heterohexamer. ..
