  • The involvement of cap-independent mRNA translation in cell fate decisions 

    Morrison, J. Kaitlin (East Carolina University, 2014)
    During cell stress many biochemical processes are shut down. For example, global mRNA translation initiation is inhibited due to the disruption of the cap-dependent mRNA recruitment mechanism. One specific example of ...
  • Selective Recruitment of Germ Cell mRNAs by eIF4 Factors 

    Friday, Andrew J. (East Carolina University, 1/13/16)
    During germ line development critical steps in the proliferation and differentiation of stem cells into oocytes and sperm are regulated by mRNA translational control. This regulation changes the subset of proteins being ...
