  1. Polynucleotide phosphorylase functions both as a 3′→ 5′ exonuclease and a poly (A) polymerase in Escherichia coli.
  2. The Smā€like protein Hfq regulates polyadenylation dependent mRNA decay in Escherichia coli.
  3. Analysis of the function of Escherichia coli poly (A) polymerase I in RNA metabolism.
  4. Genomic analysis in Escherichia coli demonstrates differential roles for polynucleotide phosphorylase and RNase II in mRNA abundance and decay.
  5. The majority of Escherichia coli mRNAs undergo post-transcriptional modification in exponentially growing cells.
  6. Polynucleotide phosphorylase, RNase II and RNase E play different roles in the in vivo modulation of polyadenylation in Escherichia coli.
  7. Analysis of Escherichia coli RNase E and RNase III activity in vivo using tiling microarrays.
  8. Bacterial/archaeal/organellar polyadenylation.
  9. RNA snap™: a rapid, quantitative and inexpensive, method for isolating total RNA from bacteria.
  10. Ribonuclease P processes polycistronic tRNA transcripts in Escherichia coli independent of ribonuclease E.
