- PAP- and GLD-2-type poly(A) polymerases are required sequentially in cytoplasmic polyadenylation and oogenesis in DrosophilaPerrine Benoit
mRNA Regulation and Development, Institut de Genetique Humaine, CNRS UPR 1142, 141 rue de la Cardonille, 34396 Montpellier Cedex 5, France
Development 135:1969-79. 2008..We conclude that two distinct poly(A) polymerases have a role in cytoplasmic polyadenylation in the female germline, each of them being specifically required for different steps of oogenesis...

Department of Molecular Biology, Princeton University, Princeton, New Jersey, United States of America
PLoS ONE 6:e24355. 2011..isoforms are in slowly sedimenting complexes that contain the translational repressor Bruno, while the hyperphosphorylated isoforms assemble into large complexes that co-sediment with polysomes and contain the Wisp poly(A) polymerase.

- The Drosophila melanogaster seminal fluid protease "seminase" regulates proteolytic and post-mating reproductive processesBrooke A LaFlamme
Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY, USA
PLoS Genet 8:e1002435. 2012..These results point to an important role for proteolysis among insect SFPs and suggest that protease cascades may be a mechanism for precise temporal regulation of multiple post-mating responses in females...
- A regulatory cytoplasmic poly(A) polymerase in Caenorhabditis elegansLiaoteng Wang
Department of Biochemistry, University of Wisconsin Madison, Madison, Wisconsin 53706, USA
Nature 419:312-6. 2002..We suggest that GLD-2 is the prototype for a class of regulatory cytoplasmic PAPs that are recruited to specific mRNAs by a binding partner, thereby targeting those mRNAs for polyadenylation and increased expression...
- The Drosophila wispy gene is required for RNA localization and other microtubule-based events of meiosis and early embryogenesisA E Brent
Department of Biological Sciences, Columbia University, New York, New York 10027, USA
Genetics 154:1649-62. 2000..We propose that the wispy gene product functions directly in several microtubule-based events in meiosis and early embryogenesis and speculate about its possible mode of action...
