🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Halpin's class at NYU.
A release factor is a protein that allows for the termination of translation by recognizing the termination codon or stop codon in an mRNA sequence. There are multiple proteins that recognizes different stop codons.
In prokaryotic transcriptional termination, there are three release factors.
Explain the role of release factors in transcription termination.
