Findings from University Nova of Lisboa Reveals New Findings on Microbiology (The role of RNases in the regulation of small RNAs)

Life Science Weekly |

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Life Science Weekly -- Current study results on Life Science Research have been published. According to news reporting originating from Oeiras, Portugal, by NewsRx correspondents, research stated, "Ribonucleases (RNases) are key factors in the control of biological processes, since they modulate the processing, degradation and quality control of RNAs. This review gives many illustrative examples of the role of RNases in the regulation of small RNAs (sRNAs)." Our news editors obtained a quote from the research from the University Nova of Lisboa, "RNase E and PNPase have been shown to degrade the free pool of sRNAs. RNase E can also be recruited to cleave mRNAs when they are interacting with sRNAs. RNase Ill cleaves double-stranded structures, and can cut both the sRNA and its RNA target when they are hybridized. Overall, ribonucleases act as conductors in the control of sRNAs." According to the news editors, the research concluded: "Therefore, it is very important to further understand their role in the post-transcriptional control of gene expression."
