Transcribing 28S, 18S, and 5.8S ribosomal subunits.

When 28S, 18S, and 5.8S ribosomal subunits are being transcribed from the gene on the coding strand of DNA, what or how is the sequence stopped? Is there a termination sequence such as a TTTT sequence? Or a termination signal or what?

Well, doesn't it stop with a stop codon?
