Directionality of DNA Transcription and RNA Production

GENES-JI0HMQ

The antisense strand of DNA is read by RNA polymerase from the

A

3' end to the 5' end during transcription. The complementary RNA is created in the 5' → 3' direction, matching the sequence of the sense strand with the exception of switching thymine for adenine.

B

5' end to the 3' end during transcription. The complementary RNA is created in the 3' → 5' direction, matching the sequence of the sense strand with the exception of switching uracil for thymine.

C

5' end to the 3' end during transcription. The complementary RNA is created in the 3' → 5' direction, matching the sequence of the sense strand with the exception of switching adenine for thymine.

D

3' end to the 5' end during transcription. The complementary RNA is created in the 5' → 3' direction, matching the sequence of the sense strand with the exception of switching uracil for thymine.
