Stability of messenger RNA of Escherichia coli ompA is affected by the use of synonymous codon

The ompA gene of E. coli was silently mutated by the substitution of nine codons located towards the end of the gene, by synonymous codons expected to be translated more slowly. At 37 degrees C in vivo the life-time of the ompA messenger RNA (mRNA) is reduced from 4.5 min (w.t.) to 3.8 min (silent m...
