  RNA polymerase II (Pol II)-transcribed genes embedded within the yeast rDNA locus are repressed through a Sir2-dependent process called ‘rDNA silencing’. Sir2 is recruited to the rDNA promoter through interactions with RNA polymerase I (Pol I), and to a pair of DNA replication fork block sites (Ter1 and Ter2) through interaction with by: 5.

Local sequence similarity exists between the subunit 2 of eukaryotic RNA polymerases II and the barnase-type bacterial RNases. The RNase-like domain from the Rpb2 ofSchizosaccharomyces pombe was expressed inEscherichia coli as a GST fusion protein and examined for its RNase activity.

RNA polymerase (ribonucleic acid polymerase), abbreviated RNAP or RNApol, officially DNA-directed RNA polymerase, is an enzyme that synthesizes RNA from a DNA template.

RNAP locally opens the double-stranded DNA (usually about four turns of the double helix) so that one strand of the exposed nucleotides can be used as a template for the synthesis of RNA, a BRENDA: BRENDA entry.

Multisubunit RNA polymerase is an essential enzyme for regulated gene expression. Here we report two Escherichia coli RNA polymerase structures: an Å structure of the core RNA polymerase and a Å structure of the σ 70 holoenzyme.

Both structures were obtained by cryo-electron microscopy and angular by: RNA polymerases are heteromultimeric complexes responsible of RNA synthesis. In yeast, as in the other eukaryotes, these complexes contain five common subunits (Rpb5, Rpb6, Rpb8, Rpb10 and Rpb12) that must have similar functions in the three RNA polymerases.

However, some of these proteins have been shown to also have specific roles.

DNA sequence comparison of the largest subunit of RNA polymerase II (Rpb1) from the wild-type and the mutant shows that the mutant phenotype results from a (hemizygous) C-to-A variation at nucleotide in one rpb1 allele, giving rise to Cited by: 2. Expression analysis of specific genes showed that RNA polymerase II from the mutant lacking Rpb4 cannot transcribe some genes.

Whole genome expression profiles and two-dimensional gel electrophoresis of proteins have shown that in the absence of Rpb4, the polymerase is inactivated at high temperature (37 °C for 45 min to 1 h) (10, 11).

A sigma factor (this term is used more often than sigma subunit) is a protein binding to the RNA polymerase, which "promotes" the expression of specific genes of the DNA, by binding or not to their promoter site(s).
