Gene information for POLR2E (Homo sapiens)
(Information is obtained from NCBI Gene database)
Entrez gene ID5434
Official gene symbolPOLR2E
Full namepolymerase (RNA) II (DNA directed) polypeptide E, 25kDa
Gene summaryThis gene encodes the fifth largest subunit of RNA polymerase II, the polymerase responsible for synthesizing messenger RNA in eukaryotes. This subunit is shared by the other two DNA-directed RNA polymerases and is present in two-fold molar excess over the other polymerase subunits. An interaction between this subunit and a hepatitis virus transactivating protein has been demonstrated, suggesting that interaction between transcriptional activators and the polymerase can occur through this subunit. A pseudogene is located on chromosome 11. [provided by RefSeq]
