Effect of RNase III on the size of bacteriophage T7 lysozyme mRNA.

The size of lysozyme mRNA from T7-infected E. coli RNase III+ and RNase III- strains was analyzed by sucrose gradient sedimentation, dimethylsulfoxide (Me2SO) sucorse gradient sedimentation, and preparative gel electrophoresis. Each technique revealed a similar size distribution of multiple lysozyme mRNA's. Analysis by preparative gel electrophoresis of RNA… CONTINUE READING
