IUBMB Comments

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. In eukaryotes, three forms of the enzyme have been distinguished on the basis of sensitivity to α-amanitin, and the type of RNA synthesized. See also EC 2.7.7.19 (polynucleotide adenylyltransferase) and EC 2.7.7.48 (RNA-directed RNA polymerase).

The enzyme appears in viruses and cellular organisms
