Abstract

The mechanism by which ribosomes select translatable mRNAs from the complex mixture of incompletely edited mRNAs in trypanosome mitochondria has remained a mystery. In this issue of Molecular Cell, Aphasizheva and colleagues (Aphasizheva et al., 2011) reveal a role for long 3′ A/U tails in signaling ribosome recruitment to a fully edited, translatable mRNA.
