mRNA localisation, as a mechanism for directing localised protein synthesis, plays a vital role in the functioning of certain cells, such as neurons and oocytes. Potentially this mechanism may also occur in polarised intestinal epithelial cells. Here we show that Staufen155, a protein involved in mRNA localisation and transport, is asymmetrically distributed in differentiated Caco-2 intestinal epithelial cells and partly co-localised with calnexin, a marker of the endoplasmic reticulum. The localisation to the apical region of the cell indicates that Staufen may be involved in localisation of transcripts to this domain. © 2005 Federation of European Biochemical Societies.
