The cycle of events that characterizes RNA polymerase II transcription has been the focus of intense study over the past two decades. Our knowledge of the molecular processes leading to transcriptional initiation is greatly improved, and the focus of many recent studies has shifted towards the less well-characterized events taking place after assembly of the pre-initiation complex, such as promoter clearance, elongation, and termination. This review gives a brief overview of the transcription… CONTINUE READING
