The exonuclease ERI-1 has a conserved dual role in 5.8S rRNA processing and RNAi

Nature Structural & Molecular Biology
Harrison W Gabel, G Ruvkun


The exonuclease ERI-1 negatively regulates RNA interference in Caenorhabditis elegans and Schizosaccharomyces pombe, and is required for production of some C. elegans endogenous small interfering RNAs. We show that ERI-1 performs 3' end processing of the 5.8S ribosomal RNA in both C. elegans and S. pombe. In C. elegans, two protein isoforms of ERI-1 are localized to the cytoplasm, and each has distinct functions in ribosomal RNA processing and negative regulation of RNA interference.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
