Value 290 Sec Range: ±30 Sec
Organism Budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae
Reference Larson DR, Zenklusen D, Wu B, Chao JA, Singer RH. Real-time observation of transcription initiation and elongation on an endogenous yeast gene. Science. 2011 Apr 22 332(6028):475-8. p.476 right column bottom paragraphPubMed ID21512033
Method An idealized fluorescence time trace for transcription of a single pre-mRNA can be described by an autocorrelation function G(t), which is a discrete autocorrelation over all the transition probabilities for RNAPII
Comments The variables are the total dwell time of a transcript (T), which includes elongation and termination, and the transcript initiation rate (c).
