Multiple Translation Factor eIF4G (IFG-1) Isoforms are Required for the Apoptosome-Dependent Activation of Germ Cell Apoptosis
(East Carolina University, 2010)
Apoptosis is a naturally occurring process during animal development required for the programmed killing and removal of injured cells. Cellular insult induces a switch in translation that allows for the rapid synthesis ...
A germline-specific isoform of eIF4E (IFE-1) is required for efficient translation of stored mRNAs and maturation of both oocytes and sperm
(East Carolina University, 2009-05-15)
Fertility and embryonic viability are measures of efficient germ cell growth and development. During oogenesis and spermatogenesis, new proteins are required for both mitotic expansion and differentiation. Qualitative and ...
