A Progress Report on Translational Control in Eukaryotes

An extraordinary amount of regulation goes into making sure that protein expression is controlled correctly. Several layers of regulation function to achieve the proper levels and proper timing of protein expression. Much is known about the protein machinery involved in translation, but we are lagging behind in understanding the mechanisms of control in eukaryotes. Kozak reviews the new second edition of Translational Control of Gene Expression, which attempts to catalog the mechanisms used by prokaryotes and eukaryotes, and the viruses that infect them and subvert their translational machinery. Review and commentary on Translational Control of Gene Expression Edited by Nahum Sonenberg, John W. B. Hershey, and Michael B. Mathews Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press, Cold Spring Harbor, New York, 2000, 1020 pp. $115 ISBN: 0-87969-568-4
