'The nucleotide bases of the promoter attatch both RNA polymerase and transcription factors '
Can anyone explain? I'm trying to visualize it but I can't 😂😥

It's hard to explain fully without context - e.g. what do you mean by this within in vivo cloning? But if you mean for transcription in general, the phrase means that RNA polymerase (the enzyme which produced RNA) needs to bind to the nucleotide bases which make up the promoter region of a gene for transcription to occur. Usually, RNA polymerase is unable to bind correctly to the bases without a specific combination of transcription factors present, forming a complex. This is how transcription factors can control transcription.
