Creative Math of RNA Polymerase III Termination: Sense Plus Antisense Makes More Sense

Mol Cell. 2015 Jun 18;58(6):974-6. doi: 10.1016/j.molcel.2015.06.003.


In this issue of Molecular Cell, Arimbasseri and Maraia (2015) demonstrate that yeast RNA polymerase III integrates inputs from both strands of the DNA template and three dedicated protein subunits to trigger the highly controlled release of the nascent RNA transcript.
