Transcription and Translation
Due to a problem in the transcription machinery of a cell, an mRNA transcript does not have a poly A tail attached. This would probably result in:
|A||Slower degradation of the transcript.|
|B||Unregulated translation of the protein.|
|C||Translation of a different polypeptide.|
|D|| Deletion of the 5’ cap.|
Poly A tails regulate the degradation of the transcripts. They are not required for any of the other functions listed in answers B, C and D.
