COLL1alpha mRNA is asymmetrically distributed in the Paracentrotus lividus egg. Here we examine the involvement of the cytoskeleton in the localization process of collagen mRNA. The use of drugs such as colchicine and cytochalasin B reveals a perturbation of localization collagen mRNA. Moreover, the presence of specific cis-and trans-acting factors involved(More)
