mRNA stability and microRNAs

Only pages 1-3 are available for preview. Some parts have been intentionally blurred.

mRNA stability
Lifetimes of eukaryotic mRNA vary
Poly(A) tail length may play a role
Poly(A) tail reduced as mRNA resides in cytoplasm
Certain destabilizing proteins in the 3’ UTR may
affect the rate of poly(A) tail shortening
When the tail is about 30 A residues

Only pages 1-3 are available for preview. Some parts have been intentionally blurred.

mRNA stability
Once 3’ tail is removed message is decapped
and degraded from 5’ end
Deadenylation, decapping, and 5’ 3’
degradation occur within small transient
cytoplasmic granules
