Upstream binding factor (UBF) is a transcription factorrequired for expression of the 18S, 5.8S, and 28S ribosomal RNAs,along with SL1 (a complex of TBP (MIM 600075) and multipleTBP-associated factors or 'TAFs'). Two UBF polypeptides, of 94 and97 kD, exist in the human (Bell et al., 1988 [PubMed 3413483]). UBFis a nucleolar phosphoprotein with both DNA binding andtransactivation domains. Sequence-specific DNA binding to the coreand upstream control elements of the human rRNA promoter ismediated through several HMG boxes (Jantzen et al., 1990 [PubMed2330041]).
