Comments [?]

case <OC:Enterobacterales>
Function Enhances distal genes transcription elongation in a specialized subset of operons that encode extracytoplasmic components. RfaH is recruited into a multi-component RNA polymerase complex by the ops element, which is a short conserved DNA sequence located downstream of the main promoter of these operons. Once bound, RfaH suppresses pausing and inhibits Rho-dependent and intrinsic termination at a subset of sites. Termination signals are bypassed, which allows complete synthesis of long RNA chains.

end case
Subunit Interacts with both the nontemplate DNA and the RNA polymerase (RNAP).
Similarity Belongs to the RfaH family.
