Summary Introduction

Introduction: Transcription is the opening step of protein synthesis where a DNA sequence from a gene is copied to make RNA strand. The rate of the transcription is maintained by certain molecules present in each cell. Those regulatory molecules include activators and repressors that are together called as transcription factors. The activators enhance, whereas the repressors diminish the transcription process.
