Addressing the functional significance of distinct paths to catalytic sites within the exosome


Department of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology

Dr P Mitchell Applications accepted all year round Self-Funded PhD Students Only

About the Project

The exosome RNase complex contains two associated catalytic subunits, one of which has two distinct catalytic sites (Mitchell, 2014). Substrates can be targeted to these enzymes along a number of multiple pathways. Which RNA substrates utilise which pathway? Is there an obligatory or stochastic choice of pathway for a given RNA? Is the flux through a given pathway subject to regulation through growth conditions?
