Class II gene

Jump to: navigation, search

A class II gene is a type of gene that codes for a protein. Class II genes are transcribed by RNAP II.

Class II genes have a promoter that often contains a TATA box.

Basal transcription of class II genes requires the formation of a preinitiation complex.

They are transcribed by RNA polymerase II, include both intron and exon, and code for polypeptide.
