Studies on the genetic control of development have proven to be very been fruitful in unveiling the mechanisms impaired in many disease conditions.

The RPAP1 protein, essential for cell identity and viability

It is a factor that has been conserved through evolution, from plants to mammals

RPAP1 regulates the activity of RNA polymerase II by means of its interaction with gene transactivators
