Three peaks of DNA-dependent RNA polymerase (RNA nucleotidyltransferase) activity are resolved by chromatography of a sonicated yeast cell extract on DEAE-Sephadex. The enzymes, which are named RNA polymerases I, II, and III in order of elution, show similar catalytic properties to the vertebrate class I, class II, and class III RNA polymerases, respectively. Yeast RNA polymerase III is readily distinguished from yeast polymerase I by its biphasic amnonium sulfate activation profile with native… CONTINUE READING
