Post-transcriptional regulation of gene expression is a ribonucleoprotein (RNP)-driven process, which involves RNA binding proteins (RBPs) and noncoding RNAs that regulate splicing, nuclear export, subcellular localization, mRNA stability and translation. This area has recently become the focus of many research groups and progress is being made using the yeast, Saccharomyces cerevisiae and various types of mammalian cell systems. Those observations have confirmed the posttranscriptional RNA operon concept in which mRNAs that encode functionally related proteins are coordinately regulated during cellular processes such as proliferation, differentiation or drug treatment. For example, mRNAs encoding proteins that function in a particular cell process or pathway can be found within a unique mRNP complex, which consists of mRNA and RNP. This provides valuable information regarding not only known components of a particular process or pathway, but importantly, leads to the identification of novel components representing potential therapeutic targets and biomarkers. In addition to those targets identified by pathway expansion, the specific RBPs regulating RNA functions may be potential therapeutic targets in their own right. In order to understand posttranscriptional control of gene expression, RIP-Chip technologies that allow the isolation and identification of mRNAs, microRNAs and protein components of RNP complexes from cell extracts using antibodies to RBPs and microarrays have been developed.
