Post-transcriptional regulation of gene expression is achieved through the control of mRNA translation, mRNA stability and subcellular mRNA localization. Post-transcriptional regulation is mediated by RNA-binding proteins and regulatory RNAs that recognize specific sequences within target transcripts. We use both Drosophila as a model to study the mechanisms that underlie post-transcriptional regulation.
