Transcription factors are proteins which regulate the expression of genes. They are divided into two groups: The group of the general transcription factors which are present in every transcription and the special transcription factors, which are present in specific tissues or cells.
Do transcription factors (or generally proteins) bind to only single strand of DNA or both strands? Since it can have non covalent bonds to both strands in theory. I would like to know the mechanism. ...
One can classify the effects of Transcription Factors (TF) on gene expression into two types: it either enhance or repress the gene expression. I have always been told that most of transcription ...
I have a list of genes for each of which I'd like to find: A list of transcription factors that up-regulate the gene A list of inhibitory factors that down-regulate it. I used this tool on ...
since the title seems self explanatory; It would be nice if anybody could provide a reference. I'm looking for a paper that I belive stated around 1.5 Mb but anything above will be cordialy welcomed. ...
Suppose we have a network with N* nodes (N* is the number of internal nodes). Every directed link in this network exists with probability p. What would be the number of: motifs that are ...
I am working with a set of DNA motifs that are predicted as potential regulatory motifs (e.g. transcription factor binding sites). The motifs belong to several species, and I wanted to cluster these ...
In molecular biology and genetics, a transcription factor is a protein that binds to specific DNA sequences, thereby controlling the flow (or transcription) of genetic information from DNA to ...
