Gene expression regulation: the role of RNA cleavage
For a gene to be translated into protein, the intermediate messenger RNA must be correctly processed. This involves the process of 3’ end cleavage and polyadenylation, which facilitate exit from the nucleus, as well as the production of different isoforms, endowing multicellular organisms with spatial and temporal gene expression diversity. Scientists of the AlternativeEnds project, funded by the European Research Council, are interested to understand the underlying mechanism implicated in RNA cleavage and termination. Project activities will provide fundamental insight into alternative gene expression and offer the possibility of manipulating cleavage site selection for therapeutic purposes.
