Comments [?]

Function Involved in mRNA degradation. Catalyzes the phosphorolysis of single-stranded polyribonucleotides processively in the 3'- to 5'-direction.
Catalytic activity RHEA:22096: phosphate + RNA(n+1) = a ribonucleoside 5'-diphosphate + RNA(n)
Cofactor Mg(2+)
case <OC:Gammaproteobacteria>
Subunit Component of the RNA degradosome, which is a multiprotein complex involved in RNA processing and mRNA degradation.
end case
Subcellular location Cytoplasm.
Similarity Belongs to the polyribonucleotide nucleotidyltransferase family.
