Why is polyadenylation needed? I know it is necessary to protect the mRNA from nucleases, but i've read that it is also necessary during nuclear export and translation! Why? In what mechanisms does it participate?

if both cap and polyA are present, the mRNA must be intact
Cis or trans? That's what matters.
