Eukaryotic mRNA precursors are processed at their 3' ends by a coupled cleavage/polyadenylation reaction. In recent years, most of the factors involved in 3'-end processing have been identified and evidence has been presented for the coupling of mRNA 3'-end formation to capping, splicing and transcription. These links are important for the quality control of the mRNA during synthesis.
