Novel enzyme offers new look at gene regulation

...in length," said Zhang. "Histones are necessary to package the DNA so that it fits inside a cell's nucleus." Because they are so intimately associated with DNA, even slight chemical alterations of histones can have profound effects on nearby genes. Depending on the precise location and how many methyl group...

Swiss researchers develop all-in-one remote control gene expression tool

...he protein encoded by the new gene. This versatile package can also carry bits of RNA that stop the cell from expressing one of its own genes, by way of RNA interference. But the cargo that makes this tool really novel and exciting is a fusion protein that acts as a kind of remote control. By administering a...
