Probing the closed-loop model of mRNA translation in living cells

Archer, Stuart K.; Shirokikh, Nikolay E.; Hallwirth, Claus V.; Beilharz, Traude H.; Preiss, Thomas


The mRNA closed-loop, formed through interactions between the cap structure, poly(A) tail, eIF4E, eIF4G and PAB, features centrally in models of eukaryotic translation initiation, although direct support for its existence in vivo is not well established. Here, we investigated the closed-loop using a combination of mRNP isolation from rapidly cross-linked cells and high-throughput qPCR. Using the interaction between these factors and the opposing ends of mRNAs as a proxy for the closed-loop, we...[Show more]
