    I don't think there is a condensation reaction in transcription. RNA polymerase just travels the length of the template strand and arranges free base nucleotides by complementarity during elongation.

    I stand corrected:

    There are many condensation reactions in transcription as the formation of phosphodiester bonds during the elongation stage is indeed, an addition-elimination, i.e. a condensation reaction.

    I do not understand how I missed that before! :ashamed2:

    Yes, there are many condensation reactions in transcription as the formation of phopsodiester bonds between adjacent mRNA nucleotides, i.e the synthesis of an mRNA strand uses condensation reactions in its formation.
