RNA polymerase II in comparison to I&III

Post by SheffieldWednesdayFC » Sun Nov 15, 2009 2:52 pm

Hey everyone,

I know that RNA polymerase II codes mainly for mRNA, I mainly for rRNA, and III mainly for tNA, and some snRNA. Right now, I am learning about the transcription methods in Eukaryotes and Prokaryotes for RNA polymerase II to make mRNA. Does RNA polymerase I&III go through the same process?

Thanks for reading

RNA Polymerase does not code for anything ;) They just transcribe these genes ;)

Cis or trans? That's what matters.
