Vikram ChandraDaniel J C Kronauer

Abstract

Queens and workers of eusocial Hymenoptera are considered homologous to the reproductive and brood care phases of an ancestral subsocial life cycle. However, the molecular mechanisms underlying the evolution of reproductive division of labor remain obscure. Using a brain transcriptomics...read more

Signal Transduction & Control of Gene Expression

Expression of genes are thought to be involved in signaling pathways, which are important for cell growth, metabolism, apoptosis and more. It is thought that gene expression plays a part in the signaling pathways that implicates the biological effects of the cell. Here is the latest research on signal transduction and the control of gene expression.

Conserved Gene Regulation (Keystone)

Conserved gene regulation are specific regulatory elements of the genome that are evolutionarily conserved. These elements include topologically associating domains (TADs) and cis-regulatory elements (CREs) and have specific roles in the genomic coding function. Find the latest research on FGF8 Locus Split-Hand/Foot Malformation Type 3here.

Signal Transduction & Gene Expression (Keystone)

Tumor cells have their own unique signal transduction and gene expression control. Targeting these specific cellular mechanisms and genetic proflies of cancer cells is an area of therapeutic exploration for some cancers. Discover the latest research on this topic with this feed.

Parasite evolution

Parasite evolution involves the heritable genetic changes that a parasite accumulates during its life time. Discover the latest research on parasite evolution here.

Conserved Gene Regulation and CTCFL (Keystone)

Conserved gene regulation refers to regulatory elements of the genome that are evolutionarily conserved. CTCFL is a specific element that plays a part in X-chromosome inactivation. It is thought to be incorrectly activated in some cancers. Find the latest research on conserved gene regulation and CTCFL here.
