RNA polymerase III is a complex, 16-subunit enzyme directing transcription of small, stable nontranslated RNA genes: tRNA, 5S rRNA, Alu RNA, U6 snRNA, and 7SK snRNA genes. The immunodominant epitope for autoantibodies with anti-RNA polymerase I/III specificity has been identified on the RNA polymerase-specific subunit RPC155.(4)

The presence of RNA polymerase III IgG antibody, when considered in conjunction with other laboratory and clinical findings, is an aid in the diagnosis of systemic sclerosis (SSc) with increased incidence of skin involvement and renal crisis with the diffuse cutaneous form of SSc.

RNA polymerase (ribonucleic acid polymerase), abbreviated RNAP or RNApol, officially DNA-directed RNA polymerase, is an enzyme that synthesizes RNA from a DNA template. RNAP locally opens the double-stranded DNA (usually about four turns of the double helix) so that one strand of the exposed nucleotides can be used as a template for the synthesis of RNA, a process called transcription.

Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is a technique that is used to amplify trace amounts of DNA (and in some instances, RNA) located in or on almost any liquid or surface where DNA strands may be deposited.

Hi Ruth, I also tested positive for RNA Polymerase about a year and a half ago and was diagnosed with SSc. I had read a bit about scleroderma and the different autoantibodies and was quite scared to come back positive on this one, so I know how you must be feeling.

The HCV RNA PCR test is a blood test. A lab technician looks for the genetic material of the HCV virus, or its ribonucleic acid (RNA). They use a process called a polymerase chain reaction (PCR).

Hello everyone, this is the first time I have posted a question. Last year I tested RNA Poly 3 "weakly positive". I have Raynaud's, joint issues and shortness of breath. Recently I had a "mildly elevated inflammatory marker" with my C reactive protein lab. I have read that RNA Polymerase III is directly related to Systemic Scleroderma.

The qualitative HCV RNA tests will report whether the hepatitis C virus is present in the bloodstream or not. The result is reported as either "detected" or "not detected." Explanation of test results: If a qualitative RNA test is positive (detected), then it is confirmed that the patient has chronic hepatitis C.
