The maturation and degradation of RNA molecules are essential features of the mechanism of gene expression, and provide the two main points for post-transcriptional regulation. Cells employ a functionally diverse array of nucleases to carry out RNA maturation and turnover. Viruses also employ cellular ribonucleases, or even use their own in their reproductive cycles. Studies on bacterial ribonucleases, and in particular those from Escherichia coli, are providing insight into ribonuclease… CONTINUE READING
