The ability to modify RNA secondary structure is crucial for numerous cellular processes. We have characterized two RNA helicase genes, crhB and crhC, which are differentially expressed in the cyanobacterium Anabaena sp. strain PCC 7120. crhC transcription is limited specifically to cold shock...
Autoregulation of RNA helicase expression in response to temperature stress in Synechocystis spCC 6803Download
RNA helicases are ubiquitous enzymes whose modification of RNA secondary structure is known to regulate RNA function. The pathways controlling RNA helicase expression, however, have not been well characterized. Expression of the cyanobacterial RNA helicase, crhR, is regulated in response to...
Conditional proteolysis is a crucial process regulating the abundance of key regulatory proteins associated with the cell cycle, differentiation pathways, or cellular response to abiotic stress in eukaryotic and prokaryotic organisms. We provide evidence that conditional proteolysis is involved...
Rearrangement of RNA secondary structure is crucial for numerous biological processes. RNA helicases participate in these rearrangements through the unwinding of duplex RNA. We report here that the redox-regulated cyanobacterial RNA helicase, CrhR, is a bona fide RNA helicase possessing both...
Regulation of cold shock-induced RNA helicase gene expression in the cyanobacterium Anabaena sptrain PCC 7120Download
Expression of the Anabaena sp. strain PCC 7120 RNA helicase gene crhC is induced by cold shock.crhC transcripts are not detectable at 30°C but accumulate at 20°C, and levels remain elevated for the duration of the cold stress. Light-derived metabolic capability, and not light per se, is required...
