RNA polyadenylation occurs not only in eukaryotes but also in bacteria. In prokaryotes, polyadenylated RNA molecules are usually degraded more efficiently than non-modified transcripts. Here we demonstrate that two transcripts, which were shown previously to be substrates for poly(A) polymerase I (PAP I), Escherichia coli lpp messenger RNA and bacteriophage lambda oop RNA, are polyadenylated more efficiently in slowly growing bacteria than in rapidly growing bacteria. Intracellular levels of… CONTINUE READING
