Problem: Which is NOT a function of general transcription factors?A. recruitment and binding of RNA polymerase to promotersB. melting of the DNA helix to expose templateC. escape of the polymerase from the promoterD. termination of transcription

FREE Expert Solution

The general transcription factors (GTFs) are the class of transcription factors  that bind to different sites to activate transcription. The relatively high number of available transcription factors are used in different stages of transcription. For example, around five transcription factors form a closed complex that assists in the unwinding of DNA.
