This is the first comprehensive review of mRNA stability and its implications for regulation of gene expression. Written by experts in the field, Control of Messenger RNA Stability serves both as a reference for specialists in regulation of mRNA stability and as a general introduction for a broader community of scientists.
- Provides perspectives from both prokaryotic and eukaryotic systems
- Offers a timely, comprehensive review of mRNA degradation, its regulation, and its significance in the control of gene expression
- Discusses the mechanisms, RNA structural determinants, and cellular factors that control mRNA degradation
- Evaluates experimental procedures for studying mRNA degradation
