Nemeth A, et al. (2013) RNA polymerase I termination: Where is the end? Biochim Biophys Acta 1829(3-4):306-17
Abstract: The synthesis of ribosomal RNA (rRNA) precursor molecules by RNA polymerase I (Pol I) terminates with the dissociation of the protein-DNA-RNA ternary complex. Based on in vitro results the mechanism of Pol I termination appeared initially to be rather conserved and simple until this process was more thoroughly re-investigated in vivo. A picture emerged that Pol I termination seems to be connected to co-transcriptional processing, re-initiation of transcription and, possibly, other processes downstream of Pol I transcription units. In this article, our current understanding of the mechanism of Pol I termination and how this process might be implicated in other biological processes in yeast and mammals is summarized and discussed. This article is part of a Special Issue entitled: Transcription by Odd Pols.
