RNA polymerase Rpb1, domain 7 (IPR007073)

Short name: RNA_pol_Rpb1_7

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Domain relationships



RNA polymerases catalyse the DNA dependent polymerisation of RNA. Prokaryotes contain a single RNA polymerase compared to three in eukaryotes (not including mitochondrial and chloroplast polymerases). This domain, domain 7, represents a mobile module of the RNA polymerase. Domain 7 interacts with the lobe domain of Rpb2 (IPR007642) [PMID: 8910400, PMID: 11313498].
