Involvement of ribosomal proteins in regulating cell growth and aptosis: translational modulation or recruitment for extraribosomal activity?

Naora, Hiroto

Description

Gene recruitment is a mechanism of molecular evolution whereby a gene product can function in more than one distinct capacity. The 'one gene-dual function' phenomenon is well illustrated by crystallins, structural proteins that play both specialized roles in the eye lens and also 'housekeeping' enzyme roles. Ribosomal proteins are integral components of the basal cellular machinery involved in protein synthesis, whose roles have been regarded collectively as important, but individually somewhat...[Show more]
