The amount of a messenger RNA available for protein synthesis depends on the efficiency of its transcription and stability. The mechanisms of degradation that determine the stability of mRNAs in bacteria have been investigated extensively during the last decade and have begun to be better understood. Several endo- and exoribonucleases involved in the mRNA metabolism have been characterized as well as structural features of mRNA which account for its stability have been determined. The most… CONTINUE READING
