    ..RNAi with CeSRPK, an SR protein kinase, resulted in early embryonic lethality, suggesting an essential role for SR protein phosphorylation during development. ..

    ..Our results suggest that individual SR proteins have unique but somewhat redundant functions in C. elegans development. ..

    ..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. ..
