Namerho-dependent termination
DescriptionTranscriptional termination in bacteria occurs in two modes, one of them dependent on the termination factor rho. Rho occurs in the overwhelming majority of bacteria, and is an essential protein in most but not all of those species. When Rho is present, the Nus factors (NusA, NusB, and NusG) participate in rho-dependent termination, although those proteins have other functions as well and are more nearly universal than Rho itself.
