  • Summary Changes in gene expression observed in vivo in response to desiccation and rehydration of the desiccation-tolerant bryophyte Tortula ruralis are regulated by alterations in the pattern of selection of messenger RNAs, from a qualitatively constant mRNA pool, by the translational machinery. When drying rates are slow, messenger ribonucleoprotein particles (mRNPs) are formed in the drying gametophytes. A representative rehydrin mRNA, Tr288, was sequestered into these particles which were… CONTINUE READING
