Researchers from the University of East Anglia (University of East Anglia, UK) approached the problem of antibiotic resistance. A new study published in the journal Nature, reveals the mechanism by which antibiotic-resistant bacteria cells support a protective barrier.
The obtained results open the way for a new wave of drugs hitting superbugs, (more…)
Fundamental mechanisms during development
- Regulation of genes by transcription factors.
- Intercellular signaling through direct contact and morphogeny.
- Induction of shape and cell polarity.
- Moving cells.
- Programmable cell death.
Regulation of genes by transcription factors
Transcription factors control the development by altering the expression of genes, including other transcription factors. Group functioning together of (more…)
System genes homeobox (Noh), first described in fruit flies Drosophila melanogaster is the paradigm of developmental biology. Knox genes are so named because they encode proteins, transcription factors, contain a conservative linked to a DNA site called homeodomains. (The portion of a gene that encodes homeodomain called homeobox, which gave its (more…)
