Apparent continuity between the messenger transport organizer and late RNA localization pathways during oogenesis in Xenopus


The localization of RNAs at the vegetal cortex in Xenopus oocytes is a complex process, involving at least two different pathways. The early, or messenger transport organizer (METRO), pathway, localizes RNAs such as Xlsirts, Xcat2 and Xwnt11 during stages 1 and 2 of oogenesis, while the late pathway localizes RNAs such as Vg1 during stages 2-4.
