The signalling pathway that comprises JAK kinases and STAT proteins (for signal transducer and activator of transcription) is important for relaying signals from various cytokines outside the cell to the inside. The feedback mechanism responsible for switching off the cytokine signal has not been elucidated. We now report the cloning and characterization of(More)
tRNAs are unique among various RNAs in that they shuttle between the nucleus and the cytoplasm, and their localization is regulated by nutrient conditions. Although nuclear export of tRNAs has been well documented, the import machinery is poorly understood. Here, we identified Ssa2p, a major cytoplasmic Hsp70 in Saccharomyces cerevisiae, as a tRNA-binding(More)
