From cradle to grave: The influence of mRNA metabolism on plant stress responses

Smith, Aaron


The sessile nature of plants necessitates complex molecular responses to external stimuli, including environmental change. As the intermediary between DNA and protein, mRNA is a crucial cog in plant gene expression, and consequently a key regulatory target. During stress, control of mRNA metabolism (and downstream protein production) takes on particular importance due to the energy constraints imposed on the cell. However, the fate of stress-induced mRNAs, particularly with regard to RNA...[Show more]
