Homologous Superfamily

DNA-directed RNA polymerase, helix hairpin domain superfamily (IPR024075)

Short name: DNA-dir_RNA_pol_helix_hairp_sf

Overlapping entries


The single subunit DNA-directed RNA polymerase (RNAP) that is encoded by bacteriophage T7 is the prototype of a class of relatively simple RNAPs that includes the RNAPs of the related phages T3 and SP6, as well as the mitochondrial and chloroplastic RNAPs [PMID: 7526118]. This superfamily represents a helix hairpin structural domain found in this type of RNA polymerases.
