    ..Further, their protection of long mRNA stretches from nuclease digestion suggests that endogenous EJCs and SR proteins cooperate to promote mRNA packaging and compaction. ..

    ..Polymer analysis of proximity ligation data for hundreds of mRNA species demonstrates that nascent and pre-translational mammalian mRNAs are compacted by their associated proteins into linear rod-like structures. ..

    ..Importantly, mRNAs encoding low-abundance regulatory proteins tend to be enriched in the monosome fraction. Our data highlight the importance of monosomes for the translation of highly regulated mRNAs. ..

    ..We also provide a thorough overview of single molecule colocalization microscopy and the essential protein and RNA tagging and detection techniques. ..
  8. Moore M, Proudfoot N. Pre-mRNA processing reaches back to transcription and ahead to translation. Cell. 2009;136:688-700 pubmed publisher
    ..The connections of pre-mRNA processing to upstream events in transcription and downstream events, including translation and mRNA decay, are elaborate, extensive, and remarkably interwoven. ..
