  • The mRNAs of transiently expressed cytokine genes contain AUUUA-rich sequences in the 3' untranslated regions. In order to examine whether the AU-specific endoribonuclease V (EC 3.1.27.8) described previously by us transinactivates those mRNA species, we introduced a 51-nucleotide ATTTA sequence from tumor necrosis factor into the 3' untranslated region of beta-globin gene. Transcripts of that construct, synthesized in vitro, were prone to endoribonuclease V digestion at those AU-rich sequences… CONTINUE READING
