Targeting of mRNAs to domains of the endoplasmic reticulum.


The targeting of proteins to specific regions of the cell by signal elements within the polypeptide sequence has received much attention, but proteins can also be directed to their appropriate cellular locations by localization of their mRNAs. This mechanism is seen clearly in polar cells like germ and embryonic cells, neurons and epithelia. Recent evidence… (More)
