Transcription is the creation of an RNA equivalent of a gene's DNA sequence prior to its expression. This process uses an RNA polymerase for the synthesis of this polynucleotide strand. 

There are three types of RNA polymerase: RNA polymerase I, II, and III. RNA polymerase I is used to synthesize rRNA except for the 5S rRNA; RNA polymerase II is the mots commonly used as it is for the synthesis of mRNA; and RNA polymerase II is for the synthesis of tRNA, as well as the 5S rRNA.
