Abstract: The cytoplasmic level of a messenger RNA, and hence protein, depends not only upon its rates of synthesis,
processing, and transport, but its decay rate as well. mRNA decay rates are frequently not static, but vary in response to
extracellular stimuli and viral infections. Sequence elements within an mRNA, together with the protein and/or small non-
