(a) template strand
(b) coding strand
(c) alpha strand
(d) anti strand
[NEET 2016, Phase Il]
Correct Option (a)
Reason : DNA dependent RNA polymerase catalyses transcription on one strand of the DNA called a template strand.
A template can be considered as one of those strands of DNA which decodes its information directly through RNA polymerase.
This information is then restored within the RNA molecule and transferred outside the nucleus for protein synthesis within the cytoplasm.
