What’s Polymerase?

Polymerases are enzymes that polymerize polynucleotides to create DNA or RNA molecules. They reduce the energy required to form bonds between nucleotides. DNA polymerases I, II, III, and IV play different roles in DNA synthesis and repair. RNA polymerases I, II, and III transcribe different sections of DNA for ribosome, mRNA, and tRNA production.

What’s RNA Polymerase?

RNA polymerase is an enzyme that transcribes DNA into RNA, creating different types of RNA such as rRNA, mRNA, and tRNA. It corrects errors and is vulnerable to toxins. Without it, genetic information cannot be copied and encoded correctly. Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) contains all the genetic information that every living thing needs to grow and […]
