Notes 11-9-09 Part 2

2) Elongation: RNA strand synthesized by pairing complementary RNA bases with DNA template strand and having those bases together with sugar phosphate backbone
3) Termination: RNA polymerase reaches loop and cant get past
end of dna getrs folded back on itself because they are complementary to itself-called hairpin loop
Termination is because RNA polymerase can only move along single stranded DNA so RNA polymerase falls off DNA strand releasing new SS RNA
