Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655 Gene-Ontology-Terms Class: GO:0003899 - DNA-directed RNA polymerase activity

Synonyms: GO:0000129, deoxyribonucleic acid-dependent ribonucleic acid polymerase activity, DNA-dependent ribonucleate nucleotidyltransferase activity, DNA-dependent RNA nucleotidyltransferase activity, DNA-dependent RNA polymerase activity, nucleoside-triphosphate:RNA nucleotidyltransferase (DNA-directed) activity, RNA nucleotidyltransferase (DNA-directed) activity

Definition: Catalysis of the reaction: nucleoside triphosphate + RNA(n) = diphosphate + RNA(n+1). Utilizes a DNA template, i.e. the catalysis of DNA-template-directed extension of the 3'-end of an RNA strand by one nucleotide at a time. Can initiate a chain 'de novo'.
