Functional expression and characterization of the cytoplasmic aminopeptidase P of Caenorhabditis elegans.
TLDR
It is suggested that the enzyme has a physiological role in the intracellular hydrolysis of proline-containing peptides absorbed from the lumen of the intestine, and codes for a cytoplasmicAP-P with very similar enzymatic properties to those of mammalian AP-P. Expand
pEg6, a Spire family member, is a maternal gene encoding a vegetally localized mRNA in Xenopus embryos
TLDR
Xenopus suggests that the completion of oocyte maturation and then the rapid cell division period is controlled exclusively at a post‐transcriptional level by specific gene products, which constitute the founders members of the Eg family of mRNAs. Expand
