RNA polymerase II (Pol II) is a multi-subunit enzyme responsible for the transcription of protein-coding genes. Transcription initiation requires recruitment of the complete transcription machinery to a promoter via solicitation by activators and chromatin remodeling factors. Pol II can coordinate 10 to 14 subunits. This complex interacts with the promoter regions of genes and a variety of elements and transcription factors. The DNA binding domain of the polymerase is a groove where TFIIB orients the DNA for unwinding and transcription.
This antibody recognizes Phospho- and non-phospho-RNA polymerase II.
Peptide containing 10 repeats of YSPT[pS]PS corresponding to the carboxyl-terminal domain of RNA polymerase II.
