Post-Transcriptional RNA Processing
Problem : What are the three post-transcriptional modifications that occur in eukaryotes?
Problem : What is the function of the 5' cap in eukaryotes?
Problem : What is unique about the linkage that forms the 5' cap and is different from other linkages we have seen?
Problem : What is the name of the enzyme that catalyzes the addition of the poly A tail and how does it know where to begin adding As?
Problem : The modifications discussed in this section pertain to eukaryotic primary RNA transcripts. Is prokaryotic newly synthesized RNA similarly processed after transcription?
