Higher frequency of intron loss from the promoter proximally paused genes of Drosophila melanogaster.
Beijing, China. In Fly (austin), 2013
Referring to previous studies on the rates of transcription and splicing and to the time saved by deletion of the introns from mouse gene Hes7, it is here suggested that transcription delay is comparable to splicing delay only when the intron is 28.5 kb or larger, which is greater in size than 95% of vertebrate introns, 99.5% of Drosophila introns, and all the annotated introns of Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Arabidopsis thaliana.
Oscillatory gene expression and somitogenesis.
Kyoto, Japan. In Wiley Interdiscip Rev Dev Biol, 2012
Expression of her1 and her7 in zebrafish and Hes7 in mice oscillates by negative feedback, and mathematical models have been used to generate and test hypotheses to aide elucidation of the role of negative feedback in regulating oscillatory expression.
