Myosin messenger ribonucleoprotein-translational control ribonucleic acid (mRNP-tcNA) from myosin mRNPs found in embryonic chick muscle has been further purified by Dowex chromatography and, from a number of controls, it is suggested that this small RNA is not an artifact produced through the degradation of RNA during its isolation. This highly purified(More)
Muscle translational-control RNA (tcRNA) has been separated into two classes, polysomal and messenger ribonuclear protein (mRNA - protein), which have different sizes as determined by acrylamide gel electrophoresis. While normally translation of mRNA - protein mRNA is inhibited by tcRNA derived from the same mRNA - proteins, this inhibition does not occur(More)
In the light of earlier work [1] which demonstrated the presence of a large number of myosin heavy chain (MHC) transcripts in chick myoblasts prior to cell fusion and the burst of MHC synthesis it was of great interest to determine the subcellular localization of the still inactive transcripts. It has been determined in differentiating muscle cells in(More)
Two messenger specific factors, phosphocellulose fractions 3 and 4, have been isolated from the initiation factor 3 fraction of red muscle initiation factors by chromatography on phosphocellulose. When added to a reticulocyte cell-free system containing both myoglobin and myosin mRNAs, phosphocellulose fraction 3 is found to specifically stimulate the(More)
