    The TATA-binding protein (TBP) binds to the TATA box sequence in eukaryotic promoters. What is its function in transcriptional initiation?

    It blocks access of RNA polymerase to the promoter, until removed by general transcription factors.

    It is the subunit of prokaryotic RNA polymerase that is required to recognize promoters.

    It modifies histones so that nucleosomes can be removed from DNA for transcription.

    It bends and partly unwinds DNA at a promoter.
