    The double life of bacterial RNA transcripts

    Résumé : Discovered in the early 80’s, small regulatory RNAs (sRNAs) are depicted as key actors in virtually all aspect of bacterial physiology (e.g. primary or secondary metabolism, cell division, virulence) [1-2]. These 50 to 500 nt-long RNA fragments are mostly involved in the post-transcriptional regulation of a subset of messenger RNAs forming their interactomes.
    Bacterial regulatory RNAs have first been characterized as exclusively originating from intergenic regions. However, recent high-throughput screenings revealed that other loci, such as untranslated regions of mRNAs [3] or transcribed spacers of tRNA transcripts [4], also serve as a source of functional regulatory RNAs.
