Transcription and RNA Processing

ID #1145

For intrinsic termination, did you say that the hairpin portion of the RNA will eventually be broken off?


No, the stem loop structure doesn't get broken off, but after we learn about translation, you may come back to transcription and wonder if the hairpin loop used for transcriptional termination affects translation. What I sort of pre-emptively mentioned today is that it doesn't.
