They bind regulatory proteins known as specific transcription factors, as opposed to the general transcription factors shared by all promoters that use RNA polymerase II. For example, the specific transcription factors Oct-1 and Oct-2 proteins bind only to the Octamer elements. Oct-1 is found in all tissues, whereas Oct-2 is only found in immune cells. A plethora of specific factors exist that are beyond the scope of this discussion. 5 Eukaryotic Transcription Many different general transcription factors help RNA polymerase II find the TATA and initiator box region of a eukaryotic promoter.

They subvert the host into expressing their genes and making more copies of themselves. Researchers exploit these characteristics to study new genes, to alter the genomes of other model organisms, and to do gene therapy on humans. SUBVIRAL INFECTIOUS AGENTS AND OTHER GENE CREATURES We have used the term gene creatures to refer to various genetic entities that are sometimes called subviral infectious agents. These creatures exist, but are not considered living because none of them can produce their own energy, duplicate their own genomes, or live independent of a host.

Rho then unwinds the DNA/RNA helix and separates the two strands. The RNA is then released. Transcription terminates either in a Rho-independent manner or in a Rho-dependent manner. THE NUMBER OF GENES ON AN MRNA VARIES Bacterial and eukaryotic chromosomes are organized very differently. In prokaryotes, the distance between genes is much smaller, and genes associated with one metabolic pathway are often found next to each other. For example, the lactose operon contains several clustered genes for lactose metabolism.
