MicroRNAs (miRNAs) silence gene expression by binding 3' untranslated regions of target mRNAs. Recent studies suggested silencing is achieved through either recruitment of eIF6, which prevents ribosome assembly, or displacement of eIF4E from the mRNA 5' cap structure. Using Drosophila...

GW bodies, also known as mammalian P-bodies, are cytoplasmic foci involved in the post-transcriptional regulation of eukaryotic gene expression. Recently, GW bodies have been linked to RNA interference and demonstrated to be important for short-interfering-RNA- and microRNA-mediated mRNA decay and...

In animals, the majority of microRNAs regulate gene expression through the RNA interference (RNAi) machinery without inducing small-interfering RNA (siRNA)-directed mRNA cleavage. Thus, the mechanisms by which microRNAs repress their targets have remained elusive. Recently, Argonaute proteins, which are key...
