Caenorhabditis elegans DLC-1 associates with ribonucleoprotein complexes to promote mRNA regulation.


:Ribonucleoprotein complexes, which contain mRNAs and their regulator proteins, carry out post-transcriptional control of gene expression. The function of many RNA-binding proteins depends on their association with cofactors. Here, we use a genomic approach to identify transcripts associated with DLC-1, a protein previously identified as a cofactor of two unrelated RNA-binding proteins that act in the Caenorhabditis elegans germline. Among the 2732 potential DLC-1 targets, most are germline mRNAs associated with oogenesis. Removal of DLC-1 affects expression of its targets expressed in the oocytes, meg-1 and meg-3. We propose that DLC-1 acts as a cofactor for multiple ribonucleoprotein complexes, including the ones regulating gene expression during oogenesis.

  • Weak pulling forces exerted on Nin-orientated transmembrane segments during co-translational insertion into the inner membrane of Escherichia coli.

    abstract::Transmembrane helices (TMHs) in membrane proteins can be orientated with their N-terminus towards the cytoplasm (Nin), or facing the non-cytoplasmic side (Nout). Most membrane proteins are inserted co-translationally into membranes, aided by Sec-type translocons. Since the final orientation of Nin- and Nout-orientated...
