The cloning vector pBR322 is a closed, circular double-stranded DNA containing 4.3 kbp of DNA. During transcription, RNA polymerase causes local unwinding of 14 bp of DNA to expose the template strand. If 10 RNA polymerases are transcribing each pBR322 molecule, what linking number is required to prevent any supercoiling during transcription? (You can assume that there are 10 bp per Watson—Crick helical repeat). / N Li‘bofl I“? = £4150 W"- ‘I‘WII’ at ‘-'- “P50 to I: I4 3 Ha bf Una-Inna! .' . W = +H -.
