Study identifies new mechanism of RNA degradation in plants

The totality of RNA molecules in an organism at any one time is the product of a delicate dance. Genes must be "turned on," or expressed, in order to turn DNA into RNA and then that RNA into proteins that accomplish an organism's physiological needs. But, just as important, those RNA transcripts must be cleared away once they are no longer required.
