Poly(A)-binding protein (PABP) is considered an essential component of a eukaryotic cell; deletion of the PABP-coding gene in yeast leads to a lethal phenotype. PABP is implicated in numerous aspects of posttranscriptional regulation, including mRNA turnover and translational initiation. A nested set of degenerate PCR primers designed from regions conserved among yeast, Xenopus, and human PABP sequences was used to amplify genomic DNA fragments from Arabidopsis thaliana.
