Latest Regulation of gene expression Stories
The body's nanomachines that read our genes don't run as smoothly as previously thought, according to a new study by University of California, Berkeley, scientists.
For many years scientists have known that the numerous biological functions of an organism are not regulated solely by the DNA sequence of its genes: Superordinate regulatory mechanisms exist that contribute to determining the fate of genes.
Scientists say they have taken a big step toward developing a new generation of drugs that treat diseases by turning genes on and off.
In the quest for new approaches to treating and preventing disease, one appealing route involves turning genes on or off at will, directly intervening in ailments such as cancer and diabetes, which result when genes fail to turn on and off as they should.
Even microbes are governed by the principle of supply and demand â€“ at least at the genetic level.
Dartmouth Medical School geneticists have made new inroads into understanding the regulatory circuitry of the biological clock that synchronizes the ebb and flow of daily activities, according to two studies published May 15.
Anyone who studied a little genetics in high school has heard of adenine, thymine, guanine and cytosine â€“ the A,T,G and C that make up the DNA code. But those are not the whole story.
