Folding messenger RNA into specific structures is a common regulatory mechanism involved in translation. In Escherichia coli, the operator of the rpsO gene transcript folds into a pseudoknot or double-hairpin conformation. S15, the gene product, binds only to the pseudoknot, thereby repressing its own synthesis when it is present in excess in the cell. The(More)
Spatiotemporal regulation of cell migration is crucial for animal development and organogenesis. Compared to spatial signals, little is known about temporal signals and the mechanisms integrating the two. In the Caenorhabditis elegans hermaphrodite, the stereotyped migration pattern of two somatic distal tip cells (DTCs) is responsible for shaping the(More)
