Fertilization of sea urchin eggs results in a large stimulation of protein synthesis. This increase in protein synthesis is mediated by the mobilization of stored maternal mRNA (mRNPs) into polysomes, but the details of the molecular mechanisms which regulate this process are not well understood. Using a sea urchin egg cell-free translation system, evidence… CONTINUE READING
