Function (not disease relevant)
Methods Sample/condition Expression pattern Dysfunction type Description PMID Source
N/A Drosophila N/A mutation The Drosophila oskar (osk) mRNA is unusual in having both coding and noncoding functions. The 3' UTR also mediates the noncoding function of osk, which is essential for progression through oogenesis. Mutations which most strongly disrupt the noncoding function are positioned in a short region (the C region) near the 3' end of the mRNA, in close proximity to elements required for activation of translation. 26433064

Interaction target Level of interaction Type of interaction Description PMID Source
BSF RNA-Protein binding Bicoid Stability Factor (BSF) binds specifically to the C region of the mRNA. Although the C region of the osk 3' UTR is required for the noncoding function, BSF binding does not appear to be essential for that function. 26433064
