  • A cDNA library prepared from one-cell zygotes of the ascidian Styela clava was screened with probes from isolated cellular fractions to identify clones encoding RNAs localized in the yellow crescent or myoplasm, a cytoskeletal domain with multiple developmental roles. The differential screen yielded five overlapping cDNA (Styela clava yellow crescent or ScYC) clones encoding a 1.2-kb polyadenylated RNA (yellow crescent or YC RNA) which is present throughout embryonic development. In situ… CONTINUE READING
