MRNAs Hit a Sticky Wicket

Research output: Contribution to journalShort surveypeer-review


Drosophila germ cell specification depends on localization of mRNAs required for patterning to the posterior of the oocyte during oogenesis. In a recent issue of Nature, Vourekas et al. (2016) suggest that Aubergine in complex with piRNAs may provide a low-specificity anchoring mechanism for posterior mRNAs.
