DNA-directed RNA polymerase activity

id: GO:0003899
name: DNA-directed 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, i.e. the catalysis of DNA-template-directed extension of the 3'-end of an RNA strand by one nucleotide at a time. Can initiate a chain 'de novo'.
