Alternative polyadenylation in the regulation and dysregulation of gene expression

Seminars in cell & developmental biology | 5 Sep 2017

RE Turner, AD Pattison and TH Beilharz
Abstract
Transcriptional control shapes a cell’s transcriptome composition, but it is RNA processing that refines its expression. The untranslated regions (UTRs) of mRNA are hotspots for regulatory control. Features in these can impact mRNA stability, localisation and translation. Here we describe how alternative cleavage and polyadenylation can change mRNA fate by changing the length of its 3'UTR.
