Gene information for POLR3K (Homo sapiens)
(Information is obtained from NCBI Gene database)
Entrez gene ID51728
Official gene symbolPOLR3K
Full namepolymerase (RNA) III (DNA directed) polypeptide K, 12.3 kDa
Gene summaryThis gene encodes a small essential subunit of RNA polymerase III, the polymerase responsible for synthesizing transfer and small ribosomal RNAs in eukaryotes. The carboxy-terminal domain of this subunit shares a high degree of sequence similarity to the carboxy-terminal domain of an RNA polymerase II elongation factor. This similarity in sequence is supported by functional studies showing that this subunit is required for proper pausing and termination during transcription. Pseudogenes of this gene are found on chromosomes 13 and 17.
