Gene Expression Analysis.
Springer Nature eBook
Description / Table of Contents:
This volume provides new approaches and technologies into roles of poly(A) metabolism in translation, RNA stability, and quality control of gene expression. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and key tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls. Authoritative and cutting-edge, Deadenylation: Methods and Protocols aims to pave the way for future investigations of the complex regulatory networks that control mRNA stability and expression.
