When a negative transcription factor is added to the regulatory region of DNA, what happens?

choose all that apply a. RNA polymerase does not bind to the regulatory region to begin transcription. b. RNA polymerase binds loosely to the regulatory region and transcription begins. c. The negative transcription factor cannot bind to the regulatory region so it does not affect the action of RNA polymerase. d. mRNA is not produced due to the presence of the negative transcription factor.
