Control of poly(A) polymerase level is essential to cytoplasmic polyadenylation and early development in Drosophila.


Poly(A) polymerase (PAP) has a role in two processes, polyadenylation of mRNA precursors in the nucleus and translational control of certain mRNAs by cytoplasmic elongation of their poly(A) tails, particularly during early development. It was found recently that at least three different PAP genes exist in mammals, encoding several PAP isoforms. The in vivo… (More)
