Rho-dependent termination and ATPases in transcript termination.


Transcription factor Rho is a ring-shaped, homohexameric protein that causes transcript termination through actions on nascent RNAs that are coupled to ATP hydrolysis. The Rho polypeptide has a distinct RNA-binding domain (RNA-BD) of known structure as well as an ATP-binding domain (ATP-BD) for which a structure has been proposed based on homology modeling… (More)
