RNA Polymerase III Simple Start Sequence Initiation At Type 3 Promoters (R-HSA-112156) [Homo sapiens]


Transcription by pol III initiates at characteristic, simple start sequences. The universal core of these start sites is a pyrimidine-purine step, transcription initiating most frequently with ATP or GTP. This event is inferred from an event in Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
