Mechanisms of regulating gene expression via selective mRNA transport

Applications accepted all year round
A critical step in the gene expression pathway that is altered in cancer is nuclear export of mRNA. We have demonstrated that mRNA export is not constitutive, but highly selective and can regulate distinct biological processes through poorly understood mechanisms.
Upstream Open Reading Frames: A New Way to Turn Plant Genes On and Off?

The ability to regulate gene expression is essential for life. Plants lack the ability to move and therefore have a particular challenge to respond to changes and trends in their environment and adjust the expression of their genes accordingly.
