Swallowing dynein: a missing link in RNA localization?

Abstract

Localization of bicoid messenger RNA to the anterior cortex of the developing oocyte is essential for correct anterior-posterior patterning of the Drosophila embryo. It now seems that the Swallow protein functions as an adaptor, bridging bicoid mRNA to dynein, a molecular motor that would transport the complex anteriorly along microtubules.
