Transcription and RNA Processing

ID #2052

which actually does the recognition of the promoter? Is it the RNA polymerase, which somehow pulls in the TFs or is it the TFs, which then prepare the site for polymerase?


It's the TFs that do the recognizing, not the polymerase molecules themselves. The inclusion of the polymerases in that statement implies that it's the complex, not just the polymerase. And yes, the TFs recruit the RNA polymerase, not the other way around.
