RNA polymerase Rpb1, domain 6 (IPR007075)

Short name: RNA_pol_Rpb1_6

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 6, represents a mobile module of the RNA polymerase. Domain 6 forms part of the shelf module [PMID: 8910400, PMID: 11313498]. This family appears to be specific to the largest subunit of RNA polymerase II.
