Foxa2 is different from other genes because it is a master gene: it controls how other genes work. For example, in the knockout mice, genes expressed i...

New sequence involved in DNA replication timing may aid in cancer detection

...e early in S phase, but they can be forced to fire later by flanking and internal DNA sequences. Now, Huberman and Chulee Yompakdee have discovered a stretch of DNA that verifies this hypothesis. To study DNA replication timing, Huberman and Yompakdee used fission yeast as a model organism because of its s...

The carboxyl terminus of the protein is later cleaved by an enzyme, disrupting the protein-HAP interaction and allowing the long, thin crystals to grow outward as well, in three dimensions. The protein is cleaved further still, Shaw said, and by the time the process is complete, enamel is 99.9 p...
