HI!
I'm working with mRNAs, and wondered how long those are, especially 3'UTR's is there a paper dealing with that topic? e.g. a genome-paper,...

Tanks in advance.

Hello dersven,

You might find the answer in the literature of nonsense-mediated decay. The distance between the stop codon and the poly-A tail is part of the trigger for this RNA degradation system.

the length of 3utr varies wildly ranging from a few to thousands in nucleotides. take a look at this paper http://www.sciencema...l/320/5883/1643
