Purine-rich element binding protein G
purG, Purgamma, Purga, PURG-B
The exact function of this gene is not known, however, its encoded product is highly similar to purine-rich element binding protein A. The latter is a DNA-binding protein which binds preferentially to the single strand of the purine-rich element termed PUR, and has been implicated in the control of both DNA replication and transcription. This gene lies in close proximity to the Werner syndrome gene, but on the opposite strand, on chromosome 8p11. Two transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.

Binding selection from a library of randomized 8-mer DNA oligonucleotide sequences identified one target family for CaP5b [5'-pur-T-pur-G-(G/C)-3'], and two target sites for CaP3W [5'-(A/T)-G-G-G-(T/C)-3' and 5'-A-T-(G/T)-T-G-3']. Circular dichroism studies indicate that unlike EuP3W, EuP5b is poorly folded in the absence of DNA.

purD:: MudJ (lacZ Kanr) and purG:: MudJ (lacZ Kanr) were used as starting strains Both strains were mutagenized by NTG, and derepressed mutants were selected on the MacConkey plate containing an excess of adenosine (2mmol/L).
