  Domain Name: RNA_pol_Rpb5_N
RNA polymerase Rpb5, N-terminal domain. Rpb5 has a bipartite structure which includes a eukaryote-specific N-terminal domain and a C-terminal domain resembling the archaeal RNAP subunit H. The N-terminal domain is involved in DNA binding and is part of the jaw module in the RNA pol II structure. This module is important for positioning the downstream DNA.
