Rho_N

Rho termination factor, N-terminal domain
Rho_N
SMART accession number:SM00959
Description: The Rho termination factor disengages newly transcribed RNA from its DNA template at certain, specific transcripts. It it thought that two copies of Rho bind to RNA and that Rho functions as a hexamer of protomers (PUBMED:10230401). This domain is found to the N-terminus of the RNA binding domain.
