How does RNA polymerase use DNA to synthesize an mRNA strand during transcription?

0 votes

 

The polymerase uses both the coding strand and the template strand of DNA to assemble two identical, antiparallel strands of ribonucleotides.

The polymerase uses one template strand of DNA to assemble a complementary, antiparallel strand of ribonucleotides.

The polymerase uses one template strand of DNA to assemble a complementary, double-stranded mRNA fragment.

The polymerase uses the coding strand of DNA to assemble a complementary, antiparallel strand of ribonucleotides.
