RNA localization: Promoters of mRNA fate

Cells respond to stress by transcribing survival genes. Zid and O’shea found that, in response to glucose starvation in budding yeast, the translation of a subset of transcriptionally activated mRNAs was increased, and that of another subset was decreased. Transcripts of the first subset were diffusely localized in the cytoplasm, whereas those of the second… (More)
