Morpholinos blocking mRNA localization elements

Citations of papers with Morpholinos blocking mRNA localization elements are here.

Morpholino oligos have been shown effective for blocking localization elements on mRNAs, inhibiting binding of the RNA recognition proteins needed for directed movement of the mRNAs.
