I thought the name sounded familiar when I checked the newest papers published in PLoS Biology today - yup, that's him, my SciBling and friend Alex Palazzo: The Signal Sequence Coding Region Promotes Nuclear Export of mRNA by Alexander F. Palazzo, Michael Springer, Yoko Shibata, Chung-Sheng Lee,…
Well I'll give you our "author's summary", a feature that accompanies every PLoS paper so that it can be better understood by the lay person: In eukaryotic cells, precursors of messenger RNAs (mRNAs) are synthesized and processed in the nucleus. During processing, noncoding introns are spliced out…
Over the last few years it has become increasing clear that gene expression is partially regulated at the mRNA level. What do I mean by that? In eukaryotic cells, the first step of gene expression occurs in the nucleus when regions of DNA are transcribed into RNA. These "transcripts" then…
It's been a while since I've written about mRNA and mRNA export. There has been lots of CPEB papers (cytoplasmic polyadenylation element binding protein), but nothing fundamentally new at the molecular level. As for mRNA export, the Reed lab will have a big paper out soon, and when that comes out I…
