Post-transcriptional gene silencing across kingdoms

, : Post-transcriptional gene silencing across kingdoms. Current Opinion in Genetics & Development 10(6): 638-643

Post-transcriptional gene silencing (PTGS) as a consequence of the introduction of either transgenes or double-stranded RNA molecules has been found to occur in a number of species. In the past year, studies in different systems have greatly enhanced our understanding of the molecular mechanisms of these phenomena. The ubiquitous presence of PTGS in both the plant and animal kingdoms and the finding of common genetic mechanisms suggest that PTGS is a universal gene-regulation system fundamental in biological processes such as protection against viruses and transposons.

For practical application, optical limiting materials must exhibit a fast response and a low threshold in order to be used for the protection of the human eye and electro-optical sensors against intense light. Many nanomaterials have been found to...

Gluconeogenesis from fructose was studied in periportal and pericentral regions of the liver lobule in perfused livers from fasted, phenobarbital-treated rats. When fructose was infused in increasing concentrations from 0.25 to 4 mM, corresponding...

We describe here conditions for the detection of insulin binding sites on Xenopus laevis oocytes. The binding of 125I-labelled insulin displayed sigmoidal behaviour, which is characteristic of the binding relationship between insulin and its recep...

Zinc (Zn) concentration in the digestive tract of common carp is always >10 times higher than most animal tissues. In a previous paper, it was reported that this high Zn came from a 43 kDa Zn-binding membrane protein. In this present study it w...

Larvae or young pupae entered diapause when transferred from summer (25 degrees C, L...
