(2020-05-07)Most animals utilize social behaviors that are preprogrammed at birth, for example, to avoid predators or defend territory. But these programs are also certainly modified by emotional learning and subsequent events. Indeed, ...
(2020-03-23)The spatial genome organization in the cell nucleus is non-random and important for gene expression regulation. Abnormal nuclear organization is related to disease. Microscopy measurements of individual genes reveal a ...
(2020-03-17)Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) regulate vital biological processes, including cell proliferation, differentiation and development. A subclass of lncRNAs is synthesized from microRNA (miRNA) host genes (MIRHGs) due to ...
Regulation of growth, patterning and cell fate-specification during imaginal disc regeneration in drosophila (2019-11-11)The process of regeneration is immensely complicated and requires the exquisitely precise orchestration of growth, patterning and cell-fate specification. Drosophila melanogaster larval tissues have recently emerged as a ...
Molecular requirements for FMRP and RNA helicase MOV10 in the translational regulation of co-bound mRNAs (2019-12-02)The fragile X mental retardation protein (FMRP), regulates translation of its bound mRNAs through an incompletely defined mechanism. Historically, FMRP has been known to directly associate with Argonaute (AGO), a key ...
