Asymmetric distribution of messenger RNAs is a widespread mechanism to localize synthesis of specific protein to distinct sites in the cell. Although not proven yet there is considerable evidence that mRNA localisation is an active process that depends on the activity of cytoskeletal motor proteins. To date, the only motor protein with a specific role in mRNA localisation is the budding yeast type V myosin Myo4p. Myo4p is required for the localisation of ASH1 mRNA, encoding a transcriptional… CONTINUE READING
