Pax gene

Pax gene

(Science: molecular biology) mouse genes that contain a dNA binding domain similar to one in the paired genes of drosophila.

8 pax genes have been identified and most of them are expressed in the nervous system during development. A number of mouse mutations have been found to map to pax genes. For example: undulated, which causes distortions of the vertebral column and sternum results from a point mutations of PAX 1 and is expressed in the sclerotome.

THe structure of DNA

... exam prep question and i was actually quite unsure how to answer this "How does the structure of DNA allow for different versions of the same gene" so DNA is a polymer and can cary many bases hence specify for many amino acids? and genes specify for amino acids so since it can carry many ...

help new at the field need advice with microarray analyzed

... by a statics) I need help in analyzed the results. I did the following thing I check what is the difference between two time points and saw if the gene went up ,didn't change went down and then split the genes in to pattern . how do I calculate the p value for those two points ? I also check how ...

The gene P21 makes people live short or longer?

All genes are necessary and required.. that's the general rule of genomics. It's mutations in genes that affect the "good" or "bad" effects of the gene in particular. Considering the pathway the p21 gene ...
