Of the four ETO domains related to Drosophila melanogaster Nervy, only two are required to induce spontaneous myeloid leukemia upon transplantation into the mouse. One of these domains is related in sequence to TAF4, a component of TFIID. The structure of this domain, ETO-TAFH, is similar to yeast Rpb4 and to Escherichia coli sigma(70); it is the first TAF-related protein with structural similarity to the multisubunit RNA polymerases.
