Note_RNADegradation – RNADegradation

WID Note_RNADegradation
Name RNADegradation
Comments RNA degradation is catalyzed by several ribonucleases: RNAse R: exoribonuclease, produces fragments of 2-5 nts, generally responsible for mRNA degradation RNAse III: endoribonuclease, degrades dsRNA, Mg2+ cofactor, homodimer, involved in rRNA maturation, cleaves scRNA at two sites, initiates decay of some mRNAs by cleaving 5' UTR RNAse P: ribonucleoprotein, matures tmRNA 5' ends
