About this book

Post-transcriptional reactions have been implicated in a number of clinical conditions (e.g. lupus, and rheumatoid arthritis), and regulatory mechanisms are the target of potential therapeutic strategies. This book provides a comprehensive overview of the various modes of gene regulation that exist post-transcriptionally. It uses selected well-characterized examples to illustrate the generally applicable principles for regulation that exist throughout the life of an RNA molecule.
