    The mitochondrial transcription initiation machinery in humans consists of three proteins: the RNA polymerase (POLRMT) and two accessory factors, transcription factors A and B2 (TFAM and TFB2M, respectively). This machinery is required for the expression of mitochondrial DNA and the biogenesis of the oxidative phosphorylation system. Previous experiments suggested that TFB2M is required for promoter melting, but conclusive experimental proof for this effect has not been presented. Moreover, the role of TFB2M in promoter unwinding has not been discriminated from that of TFAM. Here we used potassium permanganate footprinting, DNase I footprinting, and in vitro transcription from the mitochondrial light-strand promoter to study the role of TFB2M in transcription initiation. We demonstrate that a complex composed of TFAM and POLRMT was readily formed at the promoter but alone was insufficient for promoter melting, which only occurred when TFB2M joined the complex. We also show that mismatch bubble templates could circumvent the requirement of TFB2M, but TFAM was still required for efficient initiation. Our findings support a model in which TFAM first recruits POLRMT to the promoter, followed by TFB2M binding and induction of promoter melting.
