Hairy RNA localisation element (HLE)

  (Redirected from Hairy (gene))

The hairy localisation element (HLE) is an RNA element found in the 3' UTR of the hairy gene. HLE contains two stem-loops. HLE is essential for the mediation of apical localisation and the two stem-loop structures act to allow the recognition of hairy mRNA by the localisation machinery.[1] HLE is found in Drosophila species.
