Title: Genomic Run-On (GRO): determination of the nascent transcriptional rate and mRNA amount in Xrn1 mutants      
keywords:
Transcriptome or Gene expression
ID:
PRJNA141469
description:
Maintaining the proper mRNA levels is a key aspect in the regulation of gene expression. The balance between mRNA synthesis and decay determines these levels. Using a whole-genome analysis, we demonstrate that most yeast mRNAs are degraded by the 5'-to-3' pathway (the "decaysome"), as proposed previously. Unexpectedly, the level of these mRNAs is highly robust to perturbations in this major pathway, as defects in various decaysome components lead to transcription down-regulation. Moreover, these components shuttle between the cytoplasm and the nucleus, in a manner dependent on proper mRNA degradation. In the nucleus, they associate with chromatin - preferentially ~30bp upstream of transcription start-sites - and directly stimulate transcription initiation and elongation. Hence, the decaysome has a dual role in maintaining mRNA levels. Significantly, proper import of some decaysome components seems to play a key role in coupling the two functions. The gene expression process is therefore circular, whereby the hitherto first and last stages are interconnected. Overall design: This study focuses on the transcriptional activity of RNA pol II in 6035 S. cerevisiae ORFs. S. cerevisiae cells grown in YPD to exponential phase were subjected to Genomic Run-On. Data were normalized using gDNA hybridized on the same array and by the software ArrayStat. Home-made macroarrays containing 6035 ORFs were used.
