The mitochondrial poly(adenylic acid)-containing mRNAs in mouse ascites cells pulsed with radioactive precursors contain 35-55 nucleotide long poly(adenylic acid) sequences. These sequences are shortened with age in cells chased with cold medium. The possible relationship between the decay rates of mRNA and their poly(adenylic acid) sequences has been… CONTINUE READING
