About this book

This text analyzes gene regulation from a different perspective. The first chapter describes mechanisms found in bacteria, and two subsequent chapters discuss which of these is most highly exploited in higher organisms. A final chapter relates these molecular strategies to other enzymatic processes, including those involving kinases, RNA splicing enzymes, proteases, and others. Evolution has generated many complex life forms from a restricted set of signals and enzymatic functions. The book aims to illustrate the kinds of rather simple molecular interactions required to generate many different complex life forms from restricted sets of signals and enzymatic functions.
