Drosophila patterning is established by differential association of mRNAs with P bodies.
The primary embryonic axes in flies, frogs and fish are formed through translational regulation of localized transcripts before fertilization. In Drosophila melanogaster, the axes are established through the transport and translational regulation of gurken (grk) and bicoid (bcd) messenger RNA in the oocyte and embryo. Both transcripts are translationally silent while being localized within the oocyte along microtubules by cytoplasmic dynein. Once localized, grk is translated at the dorsoanter...Expand abstract
