When the researchers used this technology on the RNA polymerase, they froze and took images of transcription at different stages and then put the images together to get a complete picture.
Unlike RNA virus, humans do not have RdRp, but have DNA-dependent RNA polymerase (DdRp) and DNA-dependent DNA polymerase.
The RNA polymerase (RdRp) coding sequences have been preferred as the primers' target, due to their highly conserved motifs between different species or even genus, for developing generic detection methods (Dovas et al.
These results indicated that Q7G inhibits viral RNA polymerase, and that it occupies the binding site of [m.
Cell cycle-dependent regulation of RNA polymerase I transcription: the nucleolar transcription factor UBF is inactive in mitosis and early G1.
f) The reaction mixture also contains a second enzyme--an RNA polymerase (in this case, T7 RNA polymerase).
We have repurposed a group of natural proteins, called integrases, to realize digital control over the flow of RNA polymerase along DNA, which in turn allowed us to engineer amplifying genetic logic," said Endy.
Scientists at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) in France focused on what is known as the endonuclease part of the enzyme RNA polymerase.

Another area of interest in HCV genome for STAT-C is the RNA-dependent RNA polymerase of the virus.
Background: Molecular events that cause tumor formation upregulate a number of HOX genes, called switch genes, coding for RNA polymerase II transcription factors.
TMA technology utilizes two enzymes: RNA polymerase and reverse transcriptase (RT).
