    basic FUNCTION
  • may be involved in the regulation of RNA polymerase II transcription elongation
  • important role of NELFA, NELFB in controlling RNA polymerase II (Pol II) pausing in transcription
  • NELFA and NELFB are each shown to act independently as competitive decelerators at two steps after the site of glucocorticoid receptor (GR) action and before or at the site of reporter gene activity
