A new way to start: NanoRNA-mediated priming of transcription initiation

 Abstract

A recent study provides evidence that RNA polymerase uses 2- to ~4-nt RNAs, species termed “nanoRNAs,” to prime transcription initiation in Escherichia coli. Priming of transcription initiation with nanoRNAs represents a previously undocumented component of transcription start site selection and gene expression.
