• biotechnology
  • It was the study of DNA that led to the development of tools that brought about the biotechnology revolution, the cloning of genes, a nd the sequencing of entire genomes. (ufl.edu)
  • regulation
  • The replication and the existence of a universal genetic code for all living beings, have together provided the basis for the understanding of fundamental cellul ar processes, mutation and genetic repair, genetic variation, the origin of life and evolution of species, and the structure/function/regulation of genes. (ufl.edu)
  • control
  • They bind to DNA and control transcription of genes (activation or inhibition). (brainscape.com)
  • To address this, biomaterial therapy is being investigated as an approach to improve regeneration in the infarcted heart, as they can possess the potential to control cell function in the infarct environment and limit the adverse compensatory changes that occur post-MI. (frontiersin.org)
  • specific
  • M. Grunstein and D. S. Hogness develop the colony hybridization method for the isolation of cloned DNAs containing specific DNA segments or genes. (damasgate.com)
  • sequence
  • However, the presence of genes and other functional elements within a sequence suggest that more sophisticated models are required, in particular, models which allow these transition probabilities to vary along the length of the sequence. (ncl.ac.uk)
  • demonstrate
  • The experiments demonstrate that the nuclei of teratocarcinoma cells remain developmentally totipotent, even after hundreds of transplant generations during which they functioned in malignant cancers. (damasgate.com)
  • N. Hozumi and S. Tonegawa demonstrate that the DNA segments coding for the variable and constant regions of an immunoglobulin chain are distant from one another in the chromosomes isolated from mouse embryos, but the seg- ments are adjacent in chromosomes isolated from mouse plasmacytomas.

  • structure
  • D. Pribnow determines the nucleotide sequences of two independent bacterio- phage T7 promoters, and compares these and other known promoter sequences to form a model for promoter structure and function. (damasgate.com)
