Messenger RNA synthesis (mRNA) accounts for a small fraction of total RNA synthesis in growing eukaryotic cells. The bulk of cellular transcription is devoted to ribosomal RNA (rRNA) synthesis (Warner, Trends Biochem Sci 24:437-440, 1999). Several unique characteristics of the rDNA and RNA polymerase I must be considered in order to accurately quantify the… CONTINUE READING
