Latest Regulation of gene expression Stories
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.
University of Michigan researchers have shown that tension on DNA molecules can affect gene expression---the process at the heart of biological function that tells a cell what to do.
A team led by Penn State's Ross Hardison, T. Ming Chu Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, has taken a large step toward unraveling how regulatory proteins control the production of gene products during development and growth.
Embryonic development is like a well-organized building project, with the embryoâ€™s DNA serving as the blueprint from which all construction details are derived.
The search for the holy grail of regenerative medicineâ€”the ability to "grow back" a perfect body part when one is lost to injury or diseaseâ€”has been under way for years, yet the steps involved in this seemingly magic process are still poorly understood.
Johns Hopkins researchers uncover new kink in gene control.
All cells perform certain basic functions. Each must selectively transcribe parts of the DNA that makes up its genome into RNAs that specify the structure of proteins.
Single-molecule tests help scientists address long-standing questions.
Genes that regulate the energy consumption of cells have a different structure and expression in type II diabetics than they do in healthy people, according to a new study from the Swedish medical university Karolinska Institute published in Cell Metabolism.
