Basal-like breast carcinoma (BLBC) has attracted considerable attention over the past few years. It has been suggested that tumours expressing basal markers have a more aggressive clinical behaviour. However, a molecular basis for this disease rem...

In this work, we report that the only exoribonuclease identified in M. genitalium, RNase R, is able to remove tRNA...
