  • Upon rehydration of the moss Tortula ruralis following desiccation at a rapid or slow rate, there is increasing utilization of newly synthesized-poly(A)(+) RNA for protein synthesis. Initially, poly(A)(+) RNA conserved in the dry moss is associated with polysomes, but by 2 hours of rehydration there is an overwhelming recruitment of newly synthesized poly(A)(+) RNA, at the expense of conserved messages. In rehydrated moss, there is a marked synthesis in vivo of new proteins, which are separable… CONTINUE READING
