About this book

Introduction

This book offers a comprehensive look into the science of

gene expression and regulation. Focusing on topics such as

actions of nuclear receptors, RNA processing, and DNA

methylation and imprinting, Gene Expression and

Regulation is edited by a leading biologist and includes

contributions by experts in the field.

Presented in the following five sections, this book covers a

full spectrum of topics: The History; The Machinery; The Regulators;

The Genome; and Special Topics. The Machinery section

covers the transcriptional apparatus and general

transcription factors. The Regulators section examines

selected gene-specific transcription factors important to

regulating gene expression. The Genome section covers

issues relevant to the behavior of the genome in relation to

gene regulation. The Special Topics section discusses

several selected topics ranging from bacterial and plant gene

expression to DNA topology and interference RNA. The

book’s focus is on scientific concepts and issues, rather than

specific organisms or experimental approaches.

Complete with more than 100 illustrations, Gene Expression

and Regulation provides biologists with concise and

comprehensive research outlined in chapters including:

• DNA Topology and Transcription

• Gene Expression in Plants

• Chromatin and Chromatin Remodeling

• Core Promoter Elements

• Bacterial Gene Regulation

• Transcription Factor Dynamics
