Gene Regulation; A Eukaryotic Perspective
Synopses & Reviews
For this forth edition, the book has been updated thoroughly, with particular emphasis on modulation of chromatin structure by histone modifications/ remodelling complexes and the role of co-activators/ co-repressors. Methods used to analyse gene expression have also been given more attention, with a new section added on methods for examining DNA binding by transcription factors. Additionally, new sections have been added on coupling of transcription factors. Additionally, new sections have been added on coupling of transcription with post-transcriptional process and negatively acting sequence elements, which are of increasing prominence.
Book News Annotation:
Using bacteriological examples only to illustrate basic control processes, the new edition of this textbook on how cellular genes are regulated in eukaryotes adds information on DNA binding by transcription factors, the coupling of transcription with post- transcriptional processes, and negatively acting sequence elements. There is also expanded coverage of aberrations in gene regulations which result in diseases other than cancer. Distributed in the US by ISBS.
