- ... RNA polymerase II requires multiple general transcription factors to initiate site-specific transcription. These proteins can assemble in an ordered fashion onto promoter DNA in vitro, and such ordered assembly may occur in vivo (Fig. 1a). Some general transcription factors can interact with RNA polymerase II in the absence of DNA, however, suggesting that RNA polymerase II may also assemble into ...
