Interplay between RNA Pol II transcription and DNA replication

Background. RNA Pol II transcription and DNA replication are the two essential processes that use as a substrate the DNA in our cells, allowing them to express the content of their genetic information and to propagate these instructions to daughter cells.
Transcription regulation in the context of genome stability
Dr M Saponaro
Applications accepted all year round
The DNA in our cells is a substrate for both RNA Pol II (RNAPII) transcription and DNA replication. Consequently, only one of the two processes can use the DNA as a template at any given time.

Precise regulation of gene transcription is vital for all organisms. In eukaryotes, dynamic changes in gene transcription orchestrate cell development and cellular responses to the ever changing environment.
