What makes dominant allele dominant?

... 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, there will be much less of protein made. Single ...

Re: nuclear DNA binding

... check against the chromosomal sequence. It's useful to know where the protein is interacting with the DNA. That doesn't eliminate the possibility that the protein also binds cytoplasmic DNA, but if there is nuclear DNA binding you can nail that down. You could also fluorescent-tag the protein ...
