RNA secondary structures regulate three steps of Rho-dependent transcription termination within a bacterial mRNA leader

Abstract

Transcription termination events in bacteria often require the RNA helicase Rho. Typically, Rho promotes termination at the end of coding sequences, but it can also terminate transcription within leader regions to implement regulatory decisions. Rho-dependent termination requires initial recognition of a Rho utilization (rut) site on a nascent RNA by Rho's… (More)
