Polyadenylylation destabilizes the rpsO mRNA of Escherichia coli.


The rpsO mRNA, encoding ribosomal protein S15, is only partly stabilized when the three ribonucleases implicated in its degradation--RNase E, polynucleotide phosphorylase, and RNase II--are inactivated. In the strain deficient for RNase E and 3'-to-5' exoribonucleases, degradation of this mRNA is correlated with the appearance of posttranscriptionally… (More)
