Deciphering the mRNP Code: RNA-Bound Determinants of Post-Transcriptional Gene Regulation

Eukaryotic cells determine the final protein output of their genetic program not only by controlling transcription but also by regulating the localization, translation and turnover rates of their mRNAs. Ultimately, the fate of any given mRNA is determined by the ensemble of all associated RNA-binding proteins (RBPs), non-coding RNAs and metabolites collectively known as the messenger ribonucleoprotein particle (mRNP). Although many mRNA-associated factors have been identified over the past years, little is known about the composition of individual mRNPs and the cooperation of their constituents. In this review we discuss recent progress that has been made on how this ‘mRNP code’ is established on individual transcripts and how it is interpreted during gene expression in eukaryotic cells.
