Abstract

Whereas the original size of poly(A) in HeLa cells is about 200 nucleotides, at steady state most of the poly(A) in mRNA contains less than 50 nucleotides. An endonucleolytic attack on poly(A) is suggested as the most likely method to accumulate short pieces of poly(A). Both poly(A) sho...read more
