All cells tested contain a cytosolic protein that binds to a defined region in the 3' untranslated region of manganese superoxide dismutase (MnSOD) RNA; both the MnSOD RNA-binding protein (MnSOD-BP) and the cis element are required for efficient translation of MnSOD RNA [Chung, D. J., Wright, A. E., and Clerch, L. B. (1997) Biochemistry 37, 16298-16306].(More)
The studies reported in this paper were designed to test the hypothesis that a cis element located in the 3' UTR of manganese superoxide dismutase (MnSOD) RNA, designated MnSOD-response element (MnSOD-RE), is a translational enhancer in vivo. NIH/3T3 cells were transfected with a posttranscriptional reporter construct in which MnSOD-RE was placed 3' of the(More)
