The role of RNA chaperone Hfq in poly(A) metabolism methods to determine positions, abundance, and lengths of short oligo(A) tails.

Abstract

Polyadenylation is a posttranscriptional modification of RNA occurring in prokaryotes, eukaryotes, and organelles. Long poly(A) tails help export eukaryotic mRNAs and promote mRNA stability and translation, whereas the short bacterial tails facilitate RNA decay. The scarcity of polyadenylated RNAs is one of the obstacles for investigators studying bacterial… (More)
