Transcription termination in Escherichia coli. Measurement of the rate of enzyme release from Rho-independent terminators.

Abstract

The termination/release phase of transcription must involve at least three major steps: cessation of elongation; release of the transcript; and release of the RNA polymerase. We have devised a novel method for measuring the rate of Escherichia coli RNA polymerase release during transcription termination. The method is based on a kinetic analysis of the rate… (More)
