We have repurposed a group of natural proteins, called integrases, to realize digital control over the flow of RNA polymerase along DNA, which in turn allowed us to engineer amplifying genetic logic," said Endy.
Kornberg and his colleagues at Stanford University School of Medicine suggests that other proteins link with RNA polymerase and form a different sort of holoenzyme that then starts transcribing DNA.
