Maturation, turnover, and quality control of RNA are performed by many different classes of ribonucleases. Escherichia coli RNase II is the prototype of the RNase II family of ribonucleases, a ubiquitous family of hydrolytic, processive 3' --> 5' exonucleases crucial in RNA metabolism. RNase R is a member of this family that is modulated in response to stress and has been implicated in virulence. In this work, RNase II-like proteins were characterized in the human pathogens Salmonella… CONTINUE READING
