The synthesis of Escherichia coli polynucleotide phosphorylase (PNPase) was examined in a mutant strain defective in the RNA processing enzyme RNase III (Rnc-). We found that the specific activity and the synthesis rate of PNPase were increased in the Rnc- strain by more than three times that in an Rnc+ strain. Such increased synthesis of PNPase was not observed in a mutant strain transformed with a plasmid carrying the rnc+ gene. Quantitative analysis of RNA showed that the transcripts from the pnp gene, which encodes PNPase, were degraded more slowly in the Rnc- strain than in the Rnc+ strain. These results indicate that processing of the transcripts by RNase III is intimately involved in controlling the expression of pnp by affecting the stability of its messenger RNA.
