RNA polymerase

n.
A polymerase that catalyzes the synthesis of a complementary strand of RNA from a DNA template, or, in some viruses, from an RNA template.

my recent work suggests that (i) developmental genes are often regulated by multiple enhancers, Sometimes located at great linear distances, (ii) the spatio-temporal activity of a large fraction of those enhancers remains unknown, (iii) enhancer-promoter interactions are usually established before the target gene is expressed and are largely stable during embryogenesis, And (iv) stable interactions seem to be associated with the presence of paused rna polymerase ii at the promoter before gene activation.
DNA is like the body's source code and an enzyme called RNA polymerase copies the code so it can be used as an instruction manual, telling our little workers what proteins cells must build so we can function.
Phylogenetic comparisons of the capsid protein sequence, RNA-dependent RNA polymerase protein sequence, and whole-genome nucleotide sequence placed PoAstV3/USA/IA/7023/2017 in the same cluster as other strains of PoAstV-3 (Figure, panels A-C).
The researchers first established in vitro that sofosbuvir can bind to the Zika virus NS2B-NS3 protease interface in an area known as the RNA-directed RNA polymerase domain, both in Zika virus-infected human neural progenitor cells and in cerebral organoids.
Favipiravir is a selective and potent inhibitor of influenza viral RNA polymerase, (8) and effective against all subtypes and strains of influenza viruses including ones sensitive or resistant to marketed neuraminidase and M2 inhibitors.
The RNA polymerase works its way down from the initiation site, prying apart the two strands of DNA and elongating the mRNA in the 5" A 3" direction.
Herein, a RNA polymerase gene based RT-PCR diagnostic assay was developed for initial detection of PBVs viral RNA in stool samples.
The blocking of polymerase basic protein subunits of influenza viral RNA polymerase by Q7G was detected by in silico molecular docking assays using AutoDock Vina program with [m.
For example in the mammals multiple repeat copies of the rRNA are tandemly organized in a head to tail fashion on acrocentric chromosomes and are transcribed by RNA polymerase I (Pol I).
The methods are very similar in that the RNA target is reverse transcribed into cDNA and then RNA copies are synthesized with an RNA polymerase.
This process is called transcription and is carried out by the enzyme RNA polymerase.
Different gene expression systems based on the xylose controlled promoter P(xylA) and various phage RNA polymerase driven systems (for instance, T7) enable B.
