Recent years have seen a paradigm shift in our understanding of gene activity and regulation. It is now clear that processing of primary transcripts as well as translational control open a myriad of opportunities for gene regulation, which are extensively used in virtually every human gene.
The recognition of many types of DNA lesions activates the cellular DNA damage response (DDR). The DDR orchestrates the appropriate cellular programs to maintain genome integrity after genotoxic stress.
Scientists at IRB Barcelona discover a crucial protein for meiosis—the cell division process that gives rise to sex cells.
Without the RingoA protein, both male and female mice are sterile.
Published in Nature Communications, the results could pave the way for the development of male contraceptives.
