mRNA trafficking, which enables the localization of mRNAs to particular intracellular targets, occurs in a wide variety of cells. The importance of the resulting RNA distribution for cellular functions, however, has been difficult to assess. We have found that cofilin-1 mRNA is rapidly localized to the leading edge of human lung carcinoma cells and that(More)
The highly conserved, RNA binding VICKZ proteins help regulate RNA localization, stability, and translation in many eukaryotes. These proteins are also required for cell migration in embryos and cultured cells. In adults, many tumors overexpress VICKZ homologs, and it has been hypothesized that the proteins can mediate cell motility and invasion. How these(More)
