A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

Actin is a major cytoskeletal protein in eukaryotes. Recent studies suggest more diverse functional roles for this protein. Actin mRNA is known to be localized to neuronal synapses and undergoes rapid deadenylation during early developmental stages. However, its 3′-untranslated region (UTR) is not characterized and there are no experimentally determined polyadenylation (polyA) sites in actin mRNA. We have found that the cytoplasmic beta-actin (Actb) gene generates two alternative transcripts terminated at tandem polyA sites. We used 3′-RACE, EST end analysis and in situ hybridization to unambiguously establish the existence of two 3′-UTRs of varying length in Actb transcript in mouse neuronal cells. Further analyses showed that these two tandem polyA sites are used in a tissue-specific manner. Although the longer 3′-UTR was expressed at a relatively lower level, it conferred higher translational efficiency to the transcript. The longer transcript harbours a conserved mmu-miR-34a/34b-5p target site. Sequence-specific anti-miRNA molecule, mutations of the miRNA target region in the 3′-UTR resulted in reduced expression. The expression was restored by a mutant miRNA complementary to the mutated target region implying that miR-34 binding to Actb 3′-UTR up-regulates target gene expression. Heterogeneity of the Actb 3′-UTR could shed light on the mechanism of miRNA-mediated regulation of messages in neuronal cells.
