plastid PEP-B RNA polymerase activity

id: GO:0001063
name: plastid PEP-B RNA polymerase activity
namespace: molecular_function
type: go
obsolete: False

Description: Catalysis of the reaction: nucleoside triphosphate + RNA(n) = diphosphate + RNA(n+1). Utilizes a DNA template that contains a plastid PEP-B RNA polymerase II specific promoter to direct initiation and catalyses DNA-template-directed extension of the 3'-end of an RNA strand by one nucleotide at a time. Can initiate a chain 'de novo'.
