Translational control by CPEB: a means to the end.

Nat Rev Mol Cell Biol 2001 Jul;2(7):521-9

Department of Molecular Genetics and Microbiology, University of Massachusetts Medical School, Worcester, Massachusetts 01655, USA.

The regulated translation of messenger RNA is essential for cell-cycle progression, establishment of the body plan during early development, and modulation of key activities in the central nervous system. Cytoplasmic polyadenylation, which is one mechanism of controlling translation, is driven by CPEB--a highly conserved, sequence-specific RNA-binding protein that binds to the cytoplasmic polyadenylation element, and modulates translational repression and mRNA localization. What are the features and functions of this multifaceted protein?
