Default RNA Transcription and Sigma Factor



Hey everyone! I'm new here! I'm working on a study guide for a molecular biology exam and I'll have tons of questions I'm sure but here's the first one.

What sequences does a sigma factor recognize?

I want to say it uses the TATA box in Eukaryots so it recognizes TATA and similar sequences obviously. Is that correct? Also, what sequences are recognized in prokaryotes?

Sigma factor is in prokaryotes. Eukaryotes use TFIID.
