Molecular imaging, the science that combines non-invasive in vivo imaging and molecular biology, has begun to use labelled oligonucleotides as radiotracers. Antisense oligonucleotides target gene expression at the RNA level, while aptamer oligonucleotides are designed to hit proteins of interest. Oligonucleotides for imaging cover a large range of applications, from the invention of new contrast agents for diagnosis to exquisite research tools for the development of new drugs.

    Translation initiation in eukaryotes is a complex and highly regulated process requiring the action of at least 12 protein factors. The pathway is distinguished by the formation of a pre-initiation complex that recruits the 5? end of the mRNA and scans along it to locate the start codon. During...

    MicroRNAs are small, noncoding RNAs that regulate gene expression in eukaryotes. The multipurpose protein hnRNP A1, a well-known factor in the regulation of precursor messenger RNA splicing, has now been implicated in the biogenesis of the microRNA miR-18a, shedding further light on the emerging...

    The CCR4 transcriptional regulatory complex consisting of CCR4, CAF1, DBF2 and other unidentified factors is one of several groups of proteins that affect gene expression. Using mass spectrometry, we have identified the 195, 185 and 116 kDa species which are part of the CCR4 complex. The 195 and...

    The Mediator complex associates with eukaryotic RNA polymerase (Pol) II and is recruited to transcriptional enhancers by activator proteins. It is believed that Mediator is a general component of the Pol II machinery that is crucial to connect enhancer-bound activators to basic transcription...
