The interplay of Hfq, poly(A) polymerase I and exoribonucleases at the 3' ends of RNAs resulting from Rho-independent termination: A tentative model.


Discovered in eukaryotes as a modification essential for mRNA function, polyadenylation was then identified as a means used by all cells to destabilize RNA. In Escherichia coli, most accessible 3' RNA extremities are believed to be potential targets of poly(A) polymerase I. However, some RNAs might be preferentially adenylated. After a short statement of… (More)
