Genetic Aspects of Antibody Synthesis

  • Roal’d S. Nezlin


One of the most important achievements of modern biology has been the establishment of the basic stages of protein biosynthesis in cells [17]. It is now generally accepted that the structure of all proteins formed during the development of the organism is determined by the sequence of nucleotides in structural genes of DNA [8]. The activity of these genes can be renewed or curtailed according to necessity at different times during the life of a cell. This regulation is apparently effected by means of special repressors — substances of unknown nature which are able to inhibit synthesis of messenger RNA on DNA [15, 82].
