Messenger RNA molecules accumulated in amphibian oocytes are stabilized and blocked from translation through association with a defined set of phosphoproteins. Phosphoproteins of 60 kDa and 56 kDa (pp60 and pp56) isolated from messenger ribonucleoprotein particles of Xenopus laevis oocytes can be bound in vitro to mRNA sequences. After phospholabelling in vitro, both pp60 and pp56 show a range of ionic forms, which resolve on two-dimensional gel electrophoresis as a series of pairs with… CONTINUE READING
