We have recently found that over-expression of GAP-43 using an axonally targeted construct with the 3′UTRs of GAP-43 promoted elongating growth of axons, while restricting the mRNA to the cell body with the 3′UTR of γ-actin had minimal effect on axon length. In this study, we show that the ARE in GAP-43′s 3′UTR is responsible for localization of GAP-43 mRNA into axons and is sufficient for GAP-43 protein's role in elongating axonal growth.
