N protein

N protein

1. Antiterminator protein of the bacteriophage _ and other phages that plays a key role in the early stages of infection. During the early phase, only two genes N and cro are transcribed, by transcription of the dNA in opposite directions. N protein binds to sites on the DNA (nut sites for N utilisation), prevents rho dependent termination and allows transcription of the genes.

2. Name was once used for GTP-binding proteins G-proteins), now obsolete and should be avoided because of confusion with n protein of bacteriophages.

What makes dominant allele dominant?

1) each gene can have from one to many alleles 2) it's not only about expression. The difference can be anywhere from transcription to protein post-translational modifications. There can be mutation in the promotor changing significantly expression. If the binding of ribosome will be impaired, ...

An Investigation of ABO Group Antigen Structure question?

I really do not understand what should it do. Just mixing the the cells with serum won't get you the reaction done. The sugars are added during protein processing inside the cells. So I'd say none.

Totipotent Stem Cell From Molecular Components

Q1 I am wanting to make an animal cell from DNA, RNA, Protein, and Fatty Acids as well as Glucose and other sugars. I am wondering. Should I start with the cell membrane or the nucleus and nucleolus(both are very important)? Q2 The pace of DNA replication ...

centrifugation of hemocytes

... for resuspension, since the cells are pelleted because of centrifugation, not because they grew there. What about trying some Western or other protein detection after the resuspension to see if there is anything at all? If you'll get some signal, you get the cells pelleted, they are just not ...

Cell signalling inhibitors

... cell signalling inhibitors for C. elegans (or generic) and tell me the enzyme or receptor that is inhibited? (Preferably for tyrosine kinase, G-protein, JAK/STAT and Phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase) Thanks :D
