Comments [?]

Function DNA-dependent RNA polymerase (RNAP) catalyzes the transcription of DNA into RNA using the four ribonucleoside triphosphates as substrates.
Catalytic activity RHEA:21248: a ribonucleoside 5'-triphosphate + RNA(n) = diphosphate + RNA(n+1)
Subunit Part of the RNA polymerase complex.
Subcellular location Cytoplasm.
Similarity Belongs to the archaeal Rpo8 RNA polymerase subunit family.
