The serial nature of reactions involved in the RNA life-cycle motivates the incorporation of delays in models of transcriptional dynamics. The models couple a bursty or switching promoter to a fairly general set of Markovian or deterministically delayed monomolecular RNA interconversion reactions with no feedback. We provide numerical solutions for the RNA copy number distributions the models induce, and solve several systems with splicing and degradation. An analysis of single-cell and single-nucleus RNA sequencing data using these models reveals that the kinetics of nuclear export do not appear to require invocation of a non-Markovian waiting time.
