- RNA polymerase
binds to DNA
at a specific region called the promoter site and separates
the double helix to single strands.
- One of the DNA
strands on the gene is used as a template
on which RNA
nucleotides are built, using the base-pairing rules.
- Adenine (A) on the DNA pairs with Uracil (U) on the RNA.
(or other types of RNA)
is released when it reaches the end of the gene.
