Small noncoding RNAs have been found in all organisms, primarily as regulators of translation and message stability. The most exhaustive searches have taken place in E. coli, resulting in identification of more than 50 small RNAs, or 1%-2% of the number of protein-coding genes. One large class of these small RNAs uses the RNA chaperone Hfq; members of this… CONTINUE READING
