Importance of Systematic Identification of Rna-binding Proteins in a Hyperthermophilic Archaeon


Recent findings of huge numbers of non-coding RNAs and accumulating reports of gene regulation at the RNA level support the concept of “the RNA world” at the beginning of life on Earth. So the study of RNAs and their enzymes in a hyperthermophilic archaeon, Pyrococcus furiosus, which is believed to be a very ancient organism, may open a new door in the life… (More)
