Problem : Suppose you have a 400 base pair segment of prokaryotic DNA that is transcribed into RNA. Approximately how long will it take to transcribe this region?
Problem : During elongation, a small region of the newly synthesized RNA molecule remains base paired to the DNA template strand forming a _________.
Problem : What is the name of the structure that signals transcription termination in rho- independent termination? What mediates the formation of this structure?
Problem : What key structural difference between DNA and RNA helps account for RNA chain release during rho-independent termination?
Problem : In which direction, 5' to 3' or 3' to 5', does the rho factor move along the RNA chain in rho-dependent termination?
