protein and DNA/ or RNA binding domain. Modification of activator. Enhancer
mediated gene expression –examples. Gene expression of metallothionine gene
expression. Response elements such as; steroid hormone response elements, metal
response elements, Basal Expression response elements. Regulation of gene expression
at a step of activation of basal apparatus, Post initiation gene expression – mechanism of
relieving roadblock (stuttering of RNA polymerase) with example. Regulation of mRNA
molecules involving both nonstop and nonsense mechanisms. Gene regulation with
example –post transcriptional –yeast and Drosophila genes, insulators in genomic
imprinting –concept and example.
