Antibodies or immunoglobulins are proteins made by the immune system in response to alien(!) molecules. Each antibody binds to its specific antigen. This great diversity and specificity is cause of ...
I'm currently investigating ChIP-seq vs. ChIP-exo for finding binding sites. As far as I can tell, ChIP-exo seems to be better in every way than ChIP-seq... but then again, I'm not strong in this ...
This Wikibook shows both proposed models of enzyme-substrate complementarity, the Lock and Key model and the Induced Fit model. I've always been taught that the Induced Fit model is the proper one. ...
I've read this paper where they specifically modify a region in the rice genome to ablate the binding site of a pathogen, Xanthomonas oryzae, and disrupt the hijacking of a gene network in the rice ...
What is the criticality of the ribosome binding site relative to the start codon in prokaryotic translation?
In prokaryotic translation, how critical for efficient translation is the location of the ribosome binding site, relative to the start codon? Ideally, it is supposed to be -7b away from the start. ...
