Gurken localisation signal

The Gurken localisation signal is an RNA regulatory element conserved across many species of the fruitfly Drosophila. The element consists of a RNA stem loop within the coding region that forms a signal for dynein-mediated RNA transport to a cap near the oocyte nucleus cite journal |author=Van De Bor V, Hartswood E, Jones C, Finnegan D, Davis I |title=gurken and the I factor retrotransposon RNAs share common localization signals and machinery |journal=Dev.
