This miRNA is embedded within the first intron of [beta]-arrestin1 ([beta]arr-1) gene and shares with its host gene the same regulatory sequences [8, 9].
The present paper describes the characterization of the 5' regulatory sequence of ChMT in Crassostrea hongkongensis.
Further for the analysis of the pattern of regulatory sequence of coexpressed virulence genes, by using RSAT program, first we mine their upstream region, then oligo-analysis and dyad-analysis was performed (van-Helden et al., 2000; Thomas-Chollier et al., 2008; Defrance et al., 2008), which took above obtained clusters information as an input for finding upstream region, oligo and dyad analysis for M.
Natural haplotypes in the regulatory sequences affect human alcohol dehydrogenase 1C (ADH1C) gene expression.
The exact mechanism of how increased expression of Cyp6g1 occurs in DDT-resistant fruitflies is unknown at this stage, but Daborn and colleagues showed that a transposable element (sometimes known as a 'jumping gene') called Accord is inserted into the Cyp6g1 regulatory sequence (the DNA sequences in front of a gene, controlling its expression).
The people generally possessed two to four copies of the regulatory sequence, in contrast to just one copy for each nonhuman primate.
For example, in the April 7, 2001, issue of Science, researchers report that by comparing one million human DNA bases with a corresponding section of mouse DNA, they have found a regulatory sequence that influences three genes involved in the immune response.
DcCoV UAE-HKU23 and other CoVs in betacoronavirus lineage A possess the same putative transcription regulatory sequence motif, 5'-UCUAAAC-3', at the 3' end of the leader sequence and preceding most ORFs (Table 3; online Technical Appendix Table 1, wwwnc.cdc.gov/EID/article/20/4/131769-Techapp1.pdf) (19,30).
In the new study, Peter Doerner and his colleagues at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies in La Jolla, Calif., spliced cyclin1 onto a regulatory sequence of DNA, forcing cyclin1 to make its protein throughout the cell cycle instead of just before cell division.
The TuMV-CP gene was introduced into Chinese cabbage through the pollen-tube pathway using the plasmid vector pBBBast-TuMV-CP (9.79 kb) which included TuMV-CP gene expression regulatory sequence (CaMV 35S promoter OCS terminator) the herbicide resistant Bar gene and other elements.
Expression of the inserted exogenous gene is then controlled by the gene regulatory sequence of the endogenous gene (Clark et al., 2000; Piedrahita, 2000; Denning and Priddle, 2003; Wang and Zhou, 2003).
