What is the general name of the enzyme that catalyzes this reaction? RNA polymerase II C. How are specificity and transcriptional fidelity achieved in the enzymecatalyzed reaction? 1. ~ equal concentrations of nucleotide triphosphate substrates in pool 2. 2-stage RNA pol II reaction which tightens the active site to facilitate the reaction when there is good base pairing with the incoming NTP and the template DNA at the addition site 3. RNAP II with its ratchet type movement can back up and cleave mismatched DNA/RNA heteroduplexes 15...
