High impact information on Pabp2

  • Hence, we have herein applied degenerate polymerase chain reaction (PCR) methodology to clone three additional members (termed rox2, rox8 and rox21) of the D. melanogaster RRM-protein gene superfamily encoding putative trans-acting regulatory factors [1].
  • PABP2 is required in vivo for polyadenylation, and Pabp2 function, including poly(A) polymerase stimulation, is essential for viability [2].
