The p68 DEAD-box RNA helicases have been identified in diverse organisms, including yeast, invertebrates, and mammals. DEAD-box RNA helicases are thought to unwind duplexed RNAs, and the p68 family may participate in initiating nucleolar assembly. Recent evidence also suggests that they are developmentally regulated in chordate embryos. bobcat, a newly described member of this gene family, has been found in eggs and developing embryos of the ascidian urochordate, Molgula oculata. Antisense RNA… CONTINUE READING
