Opis: Eukaryotic Transcription Factors - David S. Latchman, D Latchman

Now in two-colour throughout, the fourth edition of "Eukaryotic Transcription Factors" has been completely rewritten and restructured to take into account the tremendous advances in our understanding of transcription factors and the mechanisms by which they act. Considerable emphasis has been given to the interaction between transcription factors and chromatin structure. Also included is an entirely new section on the mediator complex and expansion of the space devoted to co-activators and co-repressors. This book is essential reading for all those who wish to understand the impact of molecular biology on medicine, whatever their speciality. Major families of eukaryotic transcription factors are described. Mechanisms of gene activation and repression are analysed. Structure-function relationships are indicated. Interaction between transcription factors and chromatin structure are described. It features roles in inducible and cell type-specific gene expression; roles in development, differentiation and human diseases including cancer; and methods of study in vitro and in vivo.Preface Acknowledgements List of Tables DNA sequences, transcription factors and chromatin structure The importance of transcription Chromatin structure and its remodelling Chromatin structure and gene regulation Chromatin remodelling factors Histone acetylation DNA sequence elements The gene promoter Sequences involved in the basic process of transcription Sequences involved in regulated transcription Sequences which act at a distance Negatively acting DNA sequences Interaction between factors bound at various sites Conclusions References Methods for studying transcription factors Introduction Methods for studying DNA-protein interactions DNA mobility shift assay DNaseI footprinting assay Methylation interference assay In vivo Footprinting assay Methods for purifying and/or cloning transcription factors Protein purification Gene cloning Use of cloned genes Domain mapping of transcription factors Determining the DNA binding specificity of an uncharacterised factor Identification of target genes for transcription factors Conclusions References Transcription factors and constitutive transcription RNA polymerases The stable transcriptional complex RNA polymerase I RNA polymerase III RNA polymerase II Stepwise assembly of the RNA polymerase II basal transcriptional complex The RNA polymerase holoenzyme TBP, The universal transcription factor?
