Towards the unified principles of transcription termination

EMBO J. 2020 Feb 3;39(3):e104112. doi: 10.15252/embj.2019104112. Epub 2019 Dec 30.


Discovery of the role of bacterial RNase J1 in termination of transcription suggests common allosteric principles and mechanistic congruency of termination between bacteria and eukaryotes, in which an unrelated RNase Xrn2/Rat1 plays a similar role.
