Protein FULL name:

DNA-directed RNA polymerases I, II, and III subunit RPABC4, DNA-directed RNA polymerase II subunit K, RPB10alpha, RNA polymerase II 7.0 kDa subunit, ABC10-alpha.,

Protein SHORT name:

RNA polymerases I, II, and III subunit ABC4 RPB7.0

POLR2K (Homo sapiens) is product of expression of POLR2K gene.

FUNCTION: DNA-dependent RNA polymerase catalyzes the transcription of DNA into RNA using the four ribonucleoside triphosphates as substrates. Common component of RNA polymerases I, II and III which synthesize ribosomal RNA precursors, mRNA precursors and many functional non-coding RNAs, and a small RNAs, such as 5S rRNA and tRNAs, respectively.

SUBUNIT: Component of the RNA polymerase I (Pol I), RNA polymerase II (Pol II) and RNA polymerase III (Pol III) complexes consisting of at least 13, 12 and 17 subunits, respectively (By similarity).

SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Nucleus (By similarity).

SIMILARITY: Belongs to the archaeal rpoP/eukaryotic RPC10 RNA polymerase subunit family.

NCBI GenPept GI number(s): 1710664
Species: Homo sapiens
