Concept

Problem: Which of the following are different between prokaryotic and eukaryotic transcription? Select all that apply.A. The area within the cell in which transcription occurs.B. The processing of RNA.C. The promoter sequences used.D. The polymerase used to create RNA.E. The direction of transcription along the DNA molecule.

FREE Expert Solution

The transcription of prokaryotes and eukaryotes both produce RNA products but are made in a very different manner from each other. Both of them make use of DNA as template. In this process, both types of organisms make use of RNA polymerase that can only go from the 3' to 5' as it can only synthesize RNA in the 5' to 3' direction.
