rpoZ (Q8RQE7) - Overview - Molecular Target Synopsis
rpoZ, DNA-directed RNA polymerase subunit omega
Enzyme Classification 18.104.22.168
Also Known as RPOZ_THET8, rpoZ
Promotes RNA polymerase assembly. Latches the N- and C-terminal regions of the beta' subunit thereby facilitating its interaction with the beta and alpha subunits. The RNAP catalytic core consists of 2 alpha, 1 beta, 1 beta' and 1 omega subunit. When a sigma factor is associated with the core the holoenzyme is formed, which can initiate transcription.
