Domain

RNA polymerase Rpb2, domain 4 (IPR007646)

Short name: RNA_pol_Rpb2_4

Domain relationships

None.

Description

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). Domain 4 is also known as the external 2 domain [PMID: 11313498].
