Abstract MDBP, a mammalian sequence-specific DNA-binding protein, was found to recognize two sites in the major immediate-early (IE) enhancer of human cytomegalovirus. The recognition sequence for MDBP at each of these sites was localized to 14 bp by studying the effects of limited G methylation, depurination, depyrimidination, or deoxyribose modification on the ability of these sites to bind to MDBP. In addition to the two high-affinity MDBP sites in the enhancer, one low-affinity MDBP site was detected 5 bp after the transcription initiating residue of this IE transcription unit. The possible biological significance of the two enhancer MDBP sites and the downstream MDBP site is discussed.
