RNA localization: SHEdding light on the RNA-motor linkage

Curr Biol. 2001 Mar 6;11(5):R166-8. doi: 10.1016/s0960-9822(01)00084-7.

Abstract

Specific mRNAs achieve an asymmetric distribution in the cell by linking to molecular motors that walk along the cytoskeleton. Studies in S. cerevisiae have begun to define the nature of the RNA-motor linkage and identify She3p as an adaptor protein that links a type V myosin motor to specific ribonucleoproteins.
