Zur H and Tuller T (2012) Strong association between mRNA folding strength and protein abundance in S. cerevisiae.LID - 10.1038/embor.2011.262 [doi] EMBO Rep ()
Abstract: One of the open questions in regulatory genomics is how the efficiency of gene translation is encoded in the coding sequence. Here we analyse recently generated measurements of folding energy in Saccharomyces cerevisiae, showing that genes with high protein abundance tend to have strong mRNA folding (mF; R=0.68). mF strength also strongly correlates with ribosomal density and mRNA levels, suggesting that this relation at least partially pertains to the efficiency of translation elongation, presumably by preventing aggregation of mRNA molecules.
