Cytoplasmic polyadenylation element binding (CPEB) proteins bind to and regulate the translation of specific mRNAs. CPEBs from Xenopus, Drosophila, and Spisula participate in oogenesis. In this report, we examine the biological roles of all identifiable CPEB homologs in a single organism, Caenorhabditis elegans. We find four homologs in the C. elegans(More)
The nucleotide sequence of a cloned satellite DNA from Antilocapra americana (American pronghorn antelope) is presented. The 1477-bp satellite is composed of degenerate 31-bp sub-repeats which are very similar in sequence to those of the major satellite DNAs from cattle and sheep. The sub-repeat sequence is more degenerate and variable in pronghorn than it(More)
