Four ribonucleases, Rnc, Rnr, Pnp and Rph, redundantly process the 3' 33 nucleotides of 16S rRNA (Sulthana, 2013). rnc is a non-essential gene and the failure to obtain a viable deletion mutant in the Keio collection is due to a polar effect on the downstream essential era gene (Takiff, 1989; Yu, 2000; Baba, 2006; Bubunenko, 2007).
