During the course of experiments aimed at identifying genes with ribonuclease III (RNase III)‐dependent expression in Escherichia coli, we found that steady state levels of bdm mRNA were dependent on cellular concentrations of RNase III. The half‐lives of adventitiously overexpressed bdm mRNA and the activities of a transcriptional bdm‘–’cat fusion were observed to be dependent on cellular concentrations of RNase III, indicating the existence of cis‐acting elements in bdm mRNA responsive to… Expand
Two Tandem RNase III Cleavage Sites Determine betT mRNA Stability in Response to Osmotic Stress in Escherichia coli
TLDR
It is demonstrated that betT mRNA stability is controlled by RNase III at the post-transcriptional level under conditions of osmotic stress. Expand
Stability of the Osmoregulated Promoter-Derived proP mRNA Is Posttranscriptionally Regulated by RNase III in Escherichia coli
TLDR
The results demonstrate that RNase III activity on proP mRNA degradation is downregulated in Escherichia coli cells under osmotic stress and demonstrate the growing importance of posttranscriptional regulation in modulating rapid physiological adjustment to environmental changes. Expand
The coordinated action of RNase III and RNase G controls enolase expression in response to oxygen availability in Escherichia coli
TLDR
A molecular mechanism underlying the regulation of enolase (eno) expression by two endoribonucleases, RNase G and RNase III, the expression levels of which are modulated by oxygen availability in Escherichia coli is reported. Expand
RNase III Controls the Degradation of corA mRNA in Escherichia coli
TLDR
An RNase III-mediated regulatory pathway that functions to modulate corA expression and, in turn, the influx of metal ions transported by CorA in E. coli is revealed. Expand
Endoribonuclease-mediated control of hns mRNA stability constitutes a key regulatory pathway for Salmonella Typhimurium pathogenicity island 1 expression.
TLDR
It is found that RNase G determines the half-life of hns mRNA by cleaving its 5' untranslated region and that altering its cleavage sites by genome editing stabilizes hns RNA, thus decreasing S. Typhimurium virulence in mice. Expand
RNase III Controls mltD mRNA Degradation in Escherichia coli
TLDR
An RNase III-mediated regulatory pathway that modulates mltD expression in E. coli is revealed, resulting in an approximately two-fold increase in the steady-state level of the mRNA. Expand
RNase III initiates rapid degradation of proU mRNA upon hypo-osmotic stress in Escherichia coli
TLDR
The data suggest that the primary role of RNase III-mediated processing of pro U mRNA is to ensure rapid shutdown of proU upon hypo-osmotic stress. Expand
Functional Conservation of RNase III-like Enzymes: Studies on a Vibrio vulnificus Ortholog of Escherichia coli RNase III
Bacterial ribonuclease III (RNase III) belongs to the RNase III enzyme family, which plays a pivotal role in controlling mRNA stability and RNA processing in both prokaryotes and eukaryotes. In theExpand
Antibiotic stress-induced modulation of the endoribonucleolytic activity of RNase III and RNase G confers resistance to aminoglycoside antibiotics in Escherichia coli
TLDR
Modulation of the endoribonucleolytic activity of RNase III and RNase G constitutes a previously uncharacterized regulatory pathway for adaptive resistance in E. coli and related gram-negative bacteria to aminoglycoside antibiotics. Expand
RNase G controls tpiA mRNA abundance in response to oxygen availability in Escherichia coli
TLDR
It is shown that RNase G cleaves the 5′ untranslated region of triosephosphate isomerase A (tpiA) mRNA, leading to destabilization of the mRNA in E. coli, indicating that RN enzyme G activity influences tpiA mRNA abundance. Expand

YmdB: a stress-responsive ribonuclease-binding regulator of E. coli RNase III activity.
TLDR
YmdB, an evolutionarily conserved 18.8-kDa protein of Escherichia coli of previously unknown function, is a regulator of RNase III cleavages and the previously unsuspected role of ribonuclease-binding proteins in the regulation ofRNase III activity is revealed. Expand
Translation of the adhE transcript to produce ethanol dehydrogenase requires RNase III cleavage in Escherichia coli
TLDR
Computer-generated secondary structures of the putative 5' untranslated region of adhE mRNA suggest that the ribosome binding site is occluded by intramolecular base pairing, and it seems likely that cleavage of this secondary structure by RNase III is necessary for efficient translation initiation. Expand
Differential modulation of E. coli mRNA abundance by inhibitory proteins that alter the composition of the degradosome
TLDR
The discovery of RraB is reported, which interacts with a different site on RNase E and interferes with cleavage of a different set of transcripts and is argued that such degradosome remodelling is a mechanism for the differential regulation of RNA cleavages in E.’coli. Expand
Consequences of RNase E scarcity in Escherichia coli
TLDR
These studies show that RNase E participates in a step in the degradation of its RNA substrates that is partially or fully rate‐determining and that E. coli growth requires a cellularRNase E concentration at least 10–20% of normal and that the feedback mecha‐nism that limits overproduction of RNaseE is also able to increase its synthesis when its concentration drops below normal. Expand
E.coli polynucleotide phosphorylase expression is autoregulated through an RNase III‐dependent mechanism.
TLDR
The results suggest that polynucleotide phosphorylase requires RNase III cleavages to autoregulate the translation of its message and that this 3′ to 5′ processive enzyme could recognize a specific repressor binding site at the 5′ end of pnp mRNA. Expand
Global analysis of Escherichia coli RNA degradosome function using DNA microarrays.
TLDR
The results, which argue that decay of some E. coli mRNAs in vivo depends on the action of assembled degradosomes, whereas others are acted on by de gradosome proteins functioning independently of the complex, imply the existence of structural features or biochemical factors that target specific classes of m RNAs for decay by de Gradosomes.

RNase III provides an important model with which to understand mechanisms of RNA maturation, RNA decay, and gene regulation, and is regulated by phosphorylation in the T7 phage- infected cell. Expand
Expression and regulation of the rnc and pdxJ operons of Escherichia coli
TLDR

Identifying and characterizing substrates of the RNase E/G family of enzymes.
TLDR
Methods for identifying sites of endonucleolytic cleavage and determining whether they depend on functional RNase E are described and the use of oligoribonucleotide and in vitro-transcribed substrates to investigate cis-acting factors such as 5'-monophosphorylation, which can significantly enhance the rate of cleavage but is insufficient to ensure processivity.
