The nuclear basket mediates perinuclear mRNA scanning in budding yeast.
Montréal, Canada. In J Cell Biol, Jan 2016
Deletion or mutation of the nuclear basket proteins MLP1/2 or the mRNA binding protein Nab2 changes the scanning behavior of mRNPs at the nuclear periphery, shortens residency time at nuclear pores, and results in frequent release of mRNAs back into the nucleoplasm.
Genomic profiling screens small molecules of metastatic prostate carcinoma.
Beijing, China. In Oncol Lett, Sep 2015
In addition, KPNA4, SYT1, PLCB1, SPRED1, MBNL2, RNF165, MEF2C, MBNL1, ZFP36L1 and CELF2, were found to be likely to play significant roles in the process of metastatic prostate carcinoma.
scaRNAs regulate splicing and vertebrate heart development.
Miyazaki, Japan. In Biochim Biophys Acta, Aug 2015
We used primary cells derived from the RV of infants with TOF to show a direct link between scaRNA levels and splice isoforms of several genes that regulate heart development (e.g., GATA4, NOTCH2, DAAM1, DICER1, MBNL1 and MBNL2).
