Latest Regulation of gene expression Stories
Life is complicated enough, so you can forgive the pioneers of DNA biology for glossing over transcriptional elongation control by RNA polymerase II, the quick and seemingly bulletproof penultimate step in the process that copies the information encoded in our DNA into protein-making instructions carried by messenger RNA.
Researchers at the Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California (USC) have discovered key processes by which estrogen, the female sex hormone, activates genes in breast-cancer cells.
Cells develop and thrive by turning genes on and off as needed in a precise pattern, a process known as regulated gene transcription.
A team of scientists, led by researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine, have uncovered a novel mechanism regulating gene expression and transcription linked to Spinocerebellar ataxia 7, an inherited neurological disorder.
If a big bunch of your brain cells suddenly went rogue and decided to become fat cells, it could cloud your decision-making capacity a bit.
Vive le difference? Not at the level of DNA.
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Feb. 17, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Clontech Laboratories, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Takara Bio Inc., today announced the release of the Tet-Express Inducible Expression System, which provides the quickest and simplest Tet-inducible expression technology yet.
In the case of DNA, the package can be as important as its contents, new work with fruit flies reveals.
Researchers at The Wistar Institute announce the release of an online tool that will help scientists find "gene promoters"â€”regions along a DNA strand that tell a cell's transcription machinery where to start reading in order to create a particular protein.
