Latest Regulation of gene expression Stories
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.
RICHMOND, Calif., Dec. 7, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Sangamo BioSciences, Inc. (Nasdaq: SGMO) announced today the presentation of preclinical data that demonstrate the ability to permanently correct a disease gene in an animal using systemic delivery of zinc finger nucleases (ZFNs).
Researchers from Mount Sinai School of Medicine have developed a new computational method that will help streamline the analysis of gene expression experiments and provide scientists with a better mechanistic understanding of the differences between diseased and normal cells.
In a landmark study to be published in the journal Nature, scientists have been able to create the first picture of genetic processes that happen inside every cell of our bodies.
Findings help illuminate biochemical mechanisms that determine stem cell function and fate.
Now scientists seeking to understand the machinations of the proteins behind the genomic wizard's screen have a powerful new tool at their disposal, courtesy of researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine.
During embryonic development, proteins called Polycomb group complexes turn genes off when and where their activity must not be present, preventing specialized tissues and organs from forming in the wrong places.
As published today in Science, researchers from Cambridge, Glasgow and Greece have discovered a remarkable amount of plasticity in how transcription factors, the proteins that bind to DNA to control the activation of genes, maintain their function over large evolutionary distances.
NYU Langone Medical Center researchers have developed a powerful new method to investigate the discrete steps necessary to turn on individual genes and examine how the process goes wrong in cancer and other diseases.
Researchers are only beginning to understand how individual variation in gene regulation can have a lasting impact on oneâ€™s health and susceptibility to certain diseases.
