PARP-1 Rules! Cornell University Scientists Find How A Protein Binds To Genes And Regulates Human Genome
Published: Feb 08, 2008
ITHACA, N.Y. - Out of chaos, control: Cornell University molecular biologists have discovered how a protein called PARP-1 binds to genes and regulates their expression across the human genome. Knowing where PARP-1 is located and how it works may allow scientists to target this protein while battling common human diseases. Their research is in a study published today (Feb.8, 2008) in the journal Science.
