In Xenopus development, the expression of several maternal mRNAs is regulated by cytoplasmic polyadenylation. CPEB and maskin, two factors that control polyadenylation-induced translation are present on the mitotic apparatus of animal pole blastomeres in embryos. Cyclin B1 protein and mRNA, whose translation is regulated by polyadenylation, are colocalized(More)
The synthesis and destruction of cyclin B drives mitosis in eukaryotic cells. Cell cycle progression is also regulated at the level of cyclin B translation. In cycling extracts from Xenopus embryos, progression into M phase requires the polyadenylation-induced translation of cyclin B1 mRNA. Polyadenylation is mediated by the phosphorylation of CPEB by(More)
Pumilio 2 (Pum2) interacts with the 3' UTR-containing pumilio binding element (PBE) of RINGO/SPY mRNA to repress translation in Xenopus oocytes. Here, we show that Pum2 also binds directly to the 5' 7mG cap structure; in so doing, it precludes eIF4E from binding the cap. Using deletion analysis, we have mapped the cap interaction domain of Pum2 to the amino(More)
