Researchers Zoom in on DNA Code Being Read in Cells

Surface–ribbon hybrid image showing the topology of the RNA Polymerase III pre-initiation complex comprising the full 17-subunit RNA Polymerase III and the three TFIIIB subunits TBP (pink), Brf1 (yellow) and Bdp1 (orange) bound to promoter DNA. The loops stabilizing the unwound DNA strands at both sides of the cleft are depicted in bright cyan. Image credit: Alessandro Vannini/Jeroen Claus (Phospho Biomedical Animation).
