What are known extreme examples of protein translation/effect coupling/decoupling? For example, examples of proteins that are immediately used at the time the have been translated and vice versa, cases of proteins that are translated but then only used much later in time in/outside the cell?

Is this similar? biology.stackexchange.com/q/2240/389 –  bobthejoe Jun 30 '12 at 6:47
@bobthejoe, it is not similar. The OP is asking about cases where a protein is functional just after translation or, conversely, long after it. –  terdon Oct 12 '12 at 20:11
