    ..Therefore, despite differences in mRNA metabolism between these species, they utilize a conserved mRNA transport mechanism...

    ..Furthermore, no defects in mRNA export were observed upon simultaneous depletion of all three REF proteins. These results suggest the existence of multiple adaptor proteins that mediate mRNA export in C. elegans. ..

    ..Our results demonstrate that the evolutionarily conserved interaction between two EJC components, Ce-Y14 and MAG-1, has critical developmental roles in C. elegans. ..

    ..However, we did not find evidence that P granules normally sequester aberrant mRNAs, or mRNAs targeted for destruction by the RNAi pathway. ..
