Abstract

Regulation of gene expression involves long-distance communication between regulatory elements and target promoters, but how this is achieved remains unknown. Insulator elements have been proposed to modulate the communication between regulatory elements and promoters due to their abili...read more

Chromatin Remodelling

Chromatin remodeling is essential for regulation of gene expression, DNA replication, as well as DNA repair. Here is the latest research on chromatin remodeling complexes and mechanisms underlying chromatin remodeling.

Stem And Cancer Cells (Keystone)

The cancer stem cell theory proposes that, in tumors, there exist a sub-population of cells that possess characteristics of normal stem cells, specifically the ability to self-renew, and that these cells proliferate and sustain the cancer. Here is the latest research on stem and cancer cells.

Polycomb Repressive Complex 2 (Keystone)

Polycomb Repressive Complex 2 is part of the Polycomb Group Proteins, which are protein complexes that are recruited to chromatin and are involved in the deposition of repressive histone marks, leading to gene repression. Discover the latest research about Polycomb Repressive Complex 2 here.
