  • question_answer Which one of the following enzyme is responsible for transcription of snRNA in eukaryotes?

    A)  RNA polymerase I

    B)  RNA polymerase II

    C)  RNA polymerase III

    D)  DNA polymerase

    Correct Answer: C

    Solution :

    In eukaryotes, the RNA polymerase ranscribes rRNA's (28S, 18S and 5.8S), whereas the RNA poly- merase III is responsible for transcription of tRNA, SsrRNA, and snRNA's (small nuclear RNA's). The RNA polymerase II transcribes precursor of mRNA, the heterogeneous nuclear RNA (hnRNA). Hence, the correct option is [c].
