Deciphering the Transcriptional Histone Acetylation Code for a Human Gene

C. Smooth muscle
Is involuntary and nonstriated, and generally arranged in two layers,
circular and longitudinal, in the walls of many visceral organs.
Is innervated by the autonomic nervous system, regulating the size of the

Moving On Up: How Mobile Elements Shape the Genome
Transposable elements are sequences of DNA that are able to integrate
themselves into new sites in the genome by either a cut-and-paste mechanism or
retrotransposition through an RNA intermediate. These m

Importance of mobile elements in the evolution of the genome
Mobile elements, such as transposons and plamids, are sequences of DNA that
can move around within the genome. Transposons move to different positions within
the genome of a single
