When DNA gets sent to time-out: New details revealed in the coordinated regulation of large stretches of DNA

6 enero 2015

For a skin cell to do its job, it must turn on a completely different set of genes than a liver cell — and keep genes it doesn’t need switched off. One way of turning off large groups of genes at once is to send them to ‘time-out’ at the edge of the nucleus. New research shows how DNA gets sent to the nucleus’ far edge, a process critical to controlling genes and determining cell fate.
