Sydney Brenner. 13 January 1927—5 April 2019
From modest beginnings Sydney became an extraordinarily influential and accomplished molecular biologist. His critical knowledge of, and insights into, key scientific problems were legendary. HisExpand
What history tells us XLV. The ‘instability’ of messenger RNA
  • M. Morange
  • Chemistry, Medicine
  • Journal of Biosciences
  • 2018
TLDR
The characterization of messenger RNAs is one of the most beautiful discoveries in the history of modern biology, the fruit of a perfect mixture of serendipity and patient experimental work, and the role of RNA as an intermediate between DNA and proteins had been recurrently proposed in previous years.

Influence of the spacer region between the Shine–Dalgarno box and the start codon for fine‐tuning of the translation efficiency in Escherichia coli
Translation efficiency contributes several orders of magnitude difference in the overall yield of exogenous gene expression in bacteria. In diverse bacteria, the translation initiation site, whoseExpand
A personal sixty-year tour of genetics and medicine.
  • A. Knudson
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Annual review of genomics and human genetics
  • 2005
TLDR
A personal experience began with an encounter with inborn errors of metabolism, selection, and the incidences of hereditary diseases, and peaked with molecular biology, virology, and cytogenetics, finally focusing all three on the problem of cancer. Expand

Conformational dynamics in microRNAs : the example of miR-34a targeting Sirt1 mRNA
In biology, regulatory mechanisms are essential to achieve complex tasks, as virtually every process can be positively or negatively modulated in its outcome, upon different cues. In humans,Expand
Frameworks for targeting RNA with small molecules
TLDR
This review discusses three general frameworks (sets of premises and hypotheses) that, in this view, have so far dominated the discovery of small-molecule ligands for RNA and proposes that RNA ligand discovery can benefit from using progress made within these three frameworks to move toward a paradigm that formulates RNA-targeting questions at the level of RNA structural subclasses. Expand
Global discovery of bacterial RNA-binding proteins by RNase-sensitive gradient profiles reports a new FinO domain protein
TLDR
Glycerol gradient sedimentation is established with RNase treatment and mass spectrometry and discovers the FopA protein as a new member of the emerging family of FinO/ProQ-like RBPs, revealing context-dependent selective RNA recognition by FinO-domain RBPs. Expand

Characterization of RNA synthesized in Escherichia coli after bacteriophage T2 infection
The primary purpose of the present investigation was to obtain further information on the RNA synthesized in E. coli subsequent to infection by a virulent virus. Particular attention was focused onExpand
Molecular characterization of ribonucleic acid from Escherichia coli ribosomes
TLDR
The ribon nucleic acid from purified 30 s, 50 s and 70 s ribosomes of E. coli has been isolated by the phenol and detergent methods and it is suggested that they are heterogeneous; some contain one 23 s ribonucleic acid component, while others contain two 16 s units. Expand
Nucleotide composition of ribonucleoprotein particles from Escherichia coli
The nucleotide composition of the four principal nucleotides is the same in the three different kinds of ribonucleoprotein particles from E. Coli, with sedimentation constants of 30 S, 50 S and 70 S.
Ribonucleoprotein particles from Escherichia coli
TLDR
In exponential cultures, 25% of the dry weight of E. coli is accounted for by RNA, which is present in ribonucleoprotein particles and 10 to 20% in the “soluble” or “non-sedimentable” fraction. Expand

Synthesis of phage-precursor protein in bacteria infected with T2†
TLDR
Several classes of protein structures found in lysates are precursors of phage particles or, more likely, are derived by breakdown during extraction of other structures that are precurredors. Expand

TLDR
The results of these investigations demonstrated the existence of a new type of reaction in which the carboxyl group of acetate reacts with ATP and becomes linked to the phosphate of adenosine-5’phosphate. Expand
Metabolism of RNA phosphorus in Escherichia coli infected with bacteriophage T7.
TLDR
The distribution of isotope (P 32 ) into the RNA mononucleotides is not uniform, but is characterized by somewhat higher specific radioactivities associated with adenylic and uridylic acids than with cytidylic and guanylic acids. Expand
