I was reading more about DNA transcription, and it mentioned abortive initiation. The article gave no explanation as to why the phenomenon occurs.

The only explanation I can think of is that it is an error in the "machinery" of the RNA polymerase.

Is there any scientific research as to why abortive initiation occurs?
