||Primary source abstract:"To elucidate the structural basis of differential mRNA stability in bacteria, the domains of the ompA 5'-untranslated region that allow it to protect mRNA from degradation have been identified by mutational analysis."
||"Thus, in E. coli, typical mRNA
half-lives (determined by northern blotting or RNase protection)
are 60–120 seconds, although a few mRNAs (for
example, ompA) display half-lives of up to 15 minutes [primary source]."
