X chromosome inactivation

... transcriptional repression of the X chromosome. The X chromosome of male germ cells is in a condensed chromatin state and is transcriptionally repressed during early spermatogenesis but to my knowledge this is not considered as "X chromosome inactivation". In mammals, X chromosome ...

Re: Theories - Origin of Life

... Chromosomes or parts of them near the centre of the nucleus are more intensively expressed than those near the outer periphery, which tend to be repressed. (note this is just one very simple strand of knowledge) Now this organisational structure has nothing to do with whether a random mutation ...

This negative regulatory region of DNA could be in the same area as the positive one, and that it can block the transcriptional ...

Re: Few questions about biology

... to be. Now during interphase, when the cell is doing its function, the DNA can be compacted into heterochromatin to keep that part of the DNA repressed and keep it silent. Whle the unbound DNA, euchromatin, is free to be transcribed. 6. Spindles are a general and vague term for me. Microtubules ...
