Propagated annotation [?]

Identifier, protein and gene names [?]

Protein name
RecName: Full=Probable DNA-directed RNA polymerase subunit delta;
AltName: Full=RNAP delta factor;
Gene name

Comments [?]

Function Participates in both the initiation and recycling phases of transcription. In the presence of the delta subunit, RNAP displays an increased specificity of transcription, a decreased affinity for nucleic acids, and an increased efficiency of RNA synthesis because of enhanced recycling.
Subunit RNAP is composed of a core of 2 alpha, a beta and a beta' subunits. The core is associated with a delta subunit and one of several sigma factors.
Similarity Belongs to the RpoE family.
