Component of the DRB sensitivity-inducing factor complex (DSIF complex), which regulates mRNA processing and transcription elongation by RNA polymerase II. DSIF positively regulates mRNA capping by stimulating the mRNA guanylyltransferase activity of RNGTT/CAP1A. DSIF also acts cooperatively with the negative elongation factor complex (NELF complex) to enhance transcriptional pausing at sites proximal to the promoter. Transcriptional pausing may facilitate the assembly of an elongation competent RNA polymerase II complex. DSIF and NELF promote pausing by inhibition of the transcription elongation factor TFIIS/S-II. TFIIS/S-II binds to RNA polymerase II at transcription pause sites and stimulates the weak intrinsic nuclease activity of the enzyme. Cleavage of blocked transcripts by RNA polymerase II promotes the resumption of transcription from the new 3' terminus and may allow repeated attempts at transcription through natural pause sites. DSIF can also positively regulate transcriptional elongation and is required for the efficient activation of transcriptional elongation by the HIV-1 nuclear transcriptional activator, Tat. DSIF acts to suppress transcriptional pausing in transcripts derived from the HIV-1 LTR and blocks premature release of HIV-1 transcripts at terminator sequences.
Belongs to the SPT5 family. Contains 5 KOW domains.
Methylated by PRMT1/HRMT1L2 and PRMT5/SKB1. Methylation negatively regulates interaction with P-TEFb and RNA polymerase II. Phosphorylated. Phosphorylation by P-TEFb alleviates transcriptional pausing and can stimulate transcriptional elongation from the HIV-1 LTR. P-TEFb dependent phosphorylation is stimulated by the HIV-1 Tat protein. Phosphorylation may also stimulate interaction with PIN1. Bulk phosphorylation occurs predominantly in mitosis.
