Bacterial gene expression can be regulated in many critical points. Some control points are found in the transcription process while some are during translation.
Several examples ofantisense RNA regulating translation in bacterial cells have been discovered, Molecular geneticists have also used antisense RNA to artificially control transcription in both bacterial and eukaryotic genes.
If you wanted to inhibit the transcription of a bacterial gene with antisense RNA, what sequence might the antisense RNA contain?
A. a sequence that is identical to the gene that codes for RNA polymerase
B. a sequence complementary to the structural gene
C. a sequence complementary to the promoter of the operon
D. a sequence complementary to the 3' UTR
E. a sequence complementary to the 5' UTR
