Dr. Sanford's lab attempts to dissect the myriad roles of RNA binding proteins in mammalian gene expression. RNA processing reactions such as pre-mRNA splicing, mRNA export, translation and mRNA decay are influenced by the interplay of trans-acting proteins with their cognate cis-acting RNA elements. By elucidating the cis-acting RNA elements recognized by specific RNA binding proteins, it will be possible to gain a better understanding of both the physiological relevance and mechanisms of action for these critical regulators of gene expression.
