Term Information [More information on DNA-templated transcription, initiation]

Accession
GO:0006352
Name
DNA-templated transcription, initiation
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
DNA-dependent RNA polymerase complex assembly at promoter, DNA-dependent transcription, initiation, initiation of DNA-dependent transcription, initiation of transcription, DNA-dependent, transcription initiation factor activity, transcription initiation, DNA-dependent
Definition
Any process involved in the assembly of the RNA polymerase preinitiation complex (PIC) at the core promoter region of a DNA template, resulting in the subsequent synthesis of RNA from that promoter. The initiation phase includes PIC assembly and the formation of the first few bonds in the RNA chain, including abortive initiation, which occurs when the first few nucleotides are repeatedly synthesized and then released. The initiation phase ends just before and does not include promoter clearance, or release, which is the transition between the initiation and elongation phases of transcription. Source: GOC:txnOH, PMID:18280161, GOC:jid
Comment
Note that promoter clearance is represented as a separate step, not part_of either initiation or elongation.
