In a certain ecosystem owls are predators for mice. the owl population increases and they eat more mice this causes the mouse population to decrease what happens next? a. the birth of mice increases. b. the birth rate of owls increases c. the population of owls decreases d. the population of mice increases
C. The population of owls decreases
Hope this helps!
step 1: initiation
initiation is the beginning of transcription. it occurs when the enzyme rna polymerase binds to a region of a gene called the promoter. this signals the dna to unwind so the enzyme can ‘‘read’’ the bases in one of the dna strands. the enzyme is now ready to make a strand of mrna with a complementary sequence of bases.
step 2: elongation
elongation is the addition of nucleotides to the mrna strand. rna polymerase reads the unwound dna strand and builds the mrna molecule, using complementary base pairs. there is a brief time during this process when the newly formed rna is bound to the unwound dna. during this process, an adenine (a) in the dna binds to an uracil (u) in the rna.
step 3: termination
termination is the ending of transcription, and occurs when rna polymerase crosses a stop (termination) sequence in the gene. the mrna strand is complete, and it detaches from dna.
