    ..To elucidate a mechanism of mRNA export, we identified a novel ptr [poly(A)+ RNA transport] mutation, ptr6, which causes accumulation of mRNA in the nucleus and inhibition of growth at the nonpermissive temperature...

    ..These results indicate that the C-terminal region of spTAF72, which largely consists of WD repeats, interacts with spTAF50 in the TFIID and SAGA-like complexes, suggesting a role for the WD repeat domain in the interaction between TAFs. ..
