Transcription, or the process by which DNA produces RNA, is a central aspect of gene expression. Transcription factors regulate transcription during development and in disease states.
Eukaryotic Transcription Factors book.
Familiarity with the mechanisms of eukaryotic gene regulation is now essential for scientists and students in both clinical and basic disciplines. However, the vast array of transcription factors, which are central to such regulation, can prove daunting to students and newcomers to this fascinating field of molecular genetics.
David Seymour Latchman CBE (born 1956) is a British geneticist and university administrator. Since 2003 he has been Master of Birkbeck, University of London, and since 1999 professor of genetics at University College London.
These systems will be described with special attention to the cellular factors required for specific transcription. A section on future prospects will address questions concerning the significance of the complex subunit structure of the nuclear enzymes; the organization and regulation of the gene coding for RNA polymerase subunits; the obtention of mutants affected at the level of factors, or RNA polymerases; the mechanism of template recognition by factors and RNA polymerase. Computational transcription factor binding prediction using random forests.
