The RNA-binding protein XSeb4R: a positive regulator of VegT mRNA stability and translation that is required for germ layer formation in Xenopus.


VegT represents a localized maternal determinant essentially required for endoderm formation in Xenopus. Here, we report on the identification of the RNA-binding protein XSeb4R as a positive regulator of VegT. XSeb4R interacts directly with the 3'-untranslated region of VegT mRNA, stabilizes it, and stimulates translation. Ablation of XSeb4R activity… (More)
