RNA polymerase enzyme

Free illustration illustration of an RNA polymerase as a glass surface model with underlying deeper ribbon diagram on a white background. RNA polymerase is an enzyme that synthesizes RNA from a DNA template. It consists of various proteins that envelop the DNA strand (red), unwind it and synthesize an RNA strand (yellow) based on the information contained in the DNA. – This illustration is based on structural data from Gnatt, A.L., Cramer, P., Kornberg, R.D.
