R-Loops as Promoters of Antisense Transcription

Mol Cell. 2019 Nov 21;76(4):529-530. doi: 10.1016/j.molcel.2019.11.001.


The study by Tan-Wong et al. (2019) in this issue of Molecular Cell reveals a capacity of R-loops to promote antisense transcription expanding our view of the features that a DNA region may have to act as a promoter.
