About the Project

Inhibition of one exosome catalytic subunit renders cells dependent upon another RNase called Rex1. What are the RNA processing or degradation pathways that require either the exosome or Rex1 activity, and which of those are essential for cell growth? What specific features of Rex1 allow it to substitute for the exosome?
