Preventing transcription-replication head-on conflict (HO-TRC)-triggered R-loop formation is essential for maintaining genome integrity in bacteria, plants, and mammals. The R-loop eraser RNase H can efficiently relax HO-TRCs. However, it is not clear how organisms resist HO-TRC-triggered R-loops when RNase H proteins are
