M1 RNA, the catalytic subunit of RNase P from Escherichia coli, is transcribed in vivo as a precursor with extra nucleotides at the 3' end. Although it was suggested previously that RNase E is not responsible for the 3' processing of M1 RNA, we show that RNase E is the enzyme responsible for this reaction. At nonpermissive temperatures, the 3' processing of M1 RNA is abolished in a temperature-sensitive strain of E. coli that harbors a mutation in the gene for RNase E. Enhanced processing of M1… CONTINUE READING
