Post-transcriptional regulation of mRNAs plays an essential role in the control of gene expression. mRNAs are regulated in ribonucleoprotein (RNP) complexes by RNA-binding proteins (RBPs) along with associated protein and noncoding RNA (ncRNA) cofactors. A global understanding of post-transcriptional control in any cell type requires identification of the components of all of its RNP complexes. We have previously shown that these complexes can be purified by immunoprecipitation using anti-RBP…

A toolbox of immunoprecipitation-grade monoclonal antibodies to human transcription factors
TLDR
A collection of 1,406 highly validated immunoprecipitation- and/or immunoblotting-grade mouse monoclonal antibodies to 737 human transcription factors is generated, using an integrated production and validation pipeline.
A toolbox of immunoprecipitation-grade monoclonal antibodies against human transcription factors
TLDR
This study used HuProt™ human protein microarrays to identify mAbs that recognize their cognate targets with exceptional specificity and finds that using full-length antigens for immunization, in combination withHuProt™ analysis, provides the highest overall success rates.
The RNA-binding protein, Rasputin/G3BP, enhances the stability and translation of its target mRNAs
TLDR
It is proposed that when cells are stressed the resulting incorporation of RIN/G3BPs into SGs sequesters them away from their short target mRNAs, which would downregulate the expression of these transcripts, even though they are not incorporated into stress granules.
The influence of microRNAs and poly(A) tail length on endogenous mRNA–protein complexes
TLDR
These results indicate that posttranscriptional regulatory factors, such as microRNAs, influence the associations of PABP and other core factors, and do so without substantially affecting steady-state tail length.
High-Throughput Generation of In Silico Derived Synthetic Antibodies via One-step Enzymatic DNA Assembly of Fragments
  • E. Gallo
  • Biology
    Molecular Biotechnology
  • 2020
TLDR
A high-throughput platform for the synthesis of in silico derived Ab clones that proves rapid and also cost-effective, which is important for labs with limited resources, since it utilizes standard laboratory equipment and molecular reagents.
ME31B globally represses maternal mRNAs by two distinct mechanisms during the Drosophila maternal-to-zygotic transition
TLDR
It is proposed that ME31B is a global repressor whose regulatory impact changes based on its biological context, likely as a consequence of translational repression in the context of robust mRNA decay.
RanBP2/Nup358 enhances miRNA activity by sumoylating and stabilizing Argonaute 1
TLDR
RanBP2 represses the translation of the interleukin-6 (IL6) mRNA, which encodes a cytokine that is aberrantly up-regulated in ANE1, which supports a model whereby RanBP2 promotes an mRNP remodelling event that is critical for the miRNA-mediated suppression of clinically relevant mRNAs, such as IL6.
Implementation of an antibody characterization procedure and application to the major ALS/FTD disease gene C9ORF72
TLDR
A procedure to validate pre-existing antibodies to identify the most highly expressing cell lines and identify high-quality antibodies revealing C9ORF72 localization to phagosomes/lysosomes is developed.

Synthetic antibodies as tools to probe RNA-binding protein function.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that synthetic antibodies can be generated and used either to perform RNA-coimmunoprecipitations (RIPs) to identify RBP-bound mRNAs, or to blockRBP-RNA interactions.

TLDR
From the simultaneous acquisition and integrative analysis of protein and RNA constituents of RNPs, extensive cross-regulatory and hierarchical interactions in post-transcriptional control are identified.

TLDR
It is argued that understanding the ribonome has greater potential for illuminating the underlying coordination principles of growth, differentiation, and disease.

It is suggested that combinatorial binding of RBPs to specific recognition elements in mRNAs is a pervasive mechanism for multi-dimensional regulation of their post-transcriptional fate.

The results provide the first systematic genome-wide analysis showing how a double-stranded RNA-binding protein achieves target specificity in vivo, and reveal a number of potentially novel roles for Staufen.

TLDR
The results suggest that combinatorial tagging of transcripts by specific RNA-binding proteins may be a general mechanism for coordinated control of the localization, translation, and decay of mRNAs and thus an integral part of the global gene expression program.
