Dna synthesis

Dna synthesis

(Science: molecular biology) The linking together of nucleotides (as deoxyribonucleotide triphosphates) to form dna. In vivo, most synthesis is dna replication, but incorporation of precursors also occurs in repair. In the special case of retroviruses, dna synthesis is directed by an rna template (see reverse transcriptase).

Gene Upregulation/Increased Expression in HMG-CoA Reductase

... would result in increased LDL-Receptors but would not result in upregulation of HMG-COA Reductase (the rate limiting step of cholesterol synthesis) However, wouldn't you expect to see the body compensate for low serum cholesterol by increasing cholesterol production? And in order to increase ...
