Noncoding regions of C. elegans mRNA undergo selective adenosine to inosine deamination and contain a small number of editing sites per transcript.
The dsRBP and inactive editor ADR-1 utilizes dsRNA binding to regulate A-to-I RNA editing across the C. elegans transcriptome.
Inverted Alu dsRNA structures do not affect localization but can alter translation efficiency of human mRNAs independent of RNA editing.
Dissecting functional similarities of ribosome-associated chaperones from Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Escherichia coli.
The in vivo function of the ribosome-associated Hsp70, Ssz1, does not require its putative peptide-binding domain.
