    An essential issue derived from the sequencing of the human and other genomes is the identification of gene regulatory elements. Using in vivo footprinting and expression analysis, here we show that mouse and human CpG island promoters at homologous genes have a completely different organization...

    Plant cystatins inhibit cysteine proteases and are important in regulating plant development and plant responses to biotic and abiotic stress. Furthermore, nitric oxide plays a signaling role in regulating plant responses to developmental processes, biotic and abiotic stress. With the aim of...
