Forty years have passed since the dramatic identification of mRNA, the unstable carrier of genetic information from DNA to protein (15, 48, 56). During the last decade, there have been scores of papers and reviews that assume that RNase E is the central enzyme for degradation of mRNA. (There have been hundreds of papers and many reviews on RNase E and mRNA degradation, with at least 60 just in the last 2 years. I regret the unintentional omission of worthy ones but only refer to examples in… CONTINUE READING
