Transcription 1. What is the structure of a gene and its associated regulatory elements. A. What component functions as the promoter? B. Why is the promoter important? C. What is meant when we are using negative or positive numbers to talk about position in a gene? 2. What is meant by the “ The Central Dogma”? 3. Transcription depends on binding of general and gene specific transcription factors. Some of these (enhancers) can be far away from the promoter. To understand this, we first need to look at the shape of DNA at the site where transcription starts. 4. How are enhancers different from promoter proximal sequences. 5. What is the difference between general transcription factors and gene specific transcription factors? 6. What is the evidence that there is a change in chromatin structure associated with turning on transcription? 7. There are two factors that contribute to chromatin remodeling. What are they and what do they do?
