Transcriptional Regulation 1 (1992, Volume 22A)

Cover Page

The transcription of DNA into RNA lies at the heart of gene activation. It is a process tightly controlled by complex interactions between intracellular proteins and the DNA. This book is a landmark account of these controls, derived from the work of over 40 leading laboratories worldwide. It is intended as a definitive reference work for this evolving field.
