what happens in each part?
(1) Recruitment- RNA polymerase and accessory proteins (GIFs) bind to promoter (sequence of bases on DNA).
(2) Initiation- Double helix is unwound. RNA poly begins putting together the corresponding nucleic acids.
(3) Elongation- RNA poly moves away from promoter, along the RNA template, synthesizing the full chain of RNA.
(4) Termination- A sequence of bases (terminator) tells RNA poly to stop. Finished RNA and RNA poly are released.
