Title: Molecular Determinants for RNA Polymerase II Elongation Rate and Acceleration      
dateReleased:
12-31-2015
description:
Recent studies reveal a striking phenomenon that RNA Polymerase II (Pol II) appears to travel on gene body in an accelerated fashion, but the mechanism has remained unknown. We performed synchronized transcription coupled with deep sequencing, observing an inverse relationship between initial rate and acceleration in different cell types. We directly tested several correlative events and detected a positive contribution of the splicing commitment factor SRSF2 to Pol II acceleration, suggesting a functional benefit of co-transcriptional pre-mRNA splicing in transcription elongation. Unexpectedly, we found that perturbation of Pol II Ser2 phosphorylation had little impact on Pol II elongation or acceleration. While H3K79me2 has been positively correlated with Pol II elongation, we showed that reduction of this histone modification event actually accelerated Pol II elongation. Together, these data suggest a combined effect of gradual gain-of-competence and gradual lost-of-epigenetic barriers as the mechanism for accelerated Pol II elongation.
