Host genes under the knife

A Danish research team has analysed the use of a particular cellular RNA degradation mechanism, which has revealed how the expression of the most complex class of genes in human cells is controlled. The study contributes to an understanding of the cell’s basic regulatory tools, and the results may eventually lead to a better understanding of the…
