... translating genes into proteins. They work like a dimmer switch, reducing the amount of available gene product, in this case the enzyme BACE1. A modified lentivirus, which has been developed in Verma's lab, delivered the siRNAs into the brain cells of the transgenic mice that were producing vast amounts o...

...a switch, or perhaps more accurately, like a light dimmer that increases or decreases the activity of genes under its control. Exercising a muscle raises PGC-1alpha levels, causing the formation of more mitochondria, the chemical power plants that create energy in cells. PGC-1alpha is also required for t...
