The Regulation of Gene Expression in Plants and Animals.- Multiple Transcript Initiation as a Mechanism for Regulating Gene Expression.- Alternative Processing as a Mechanism for Regulating Gene Expression.- Messenger RNA 3?-end Formation and the Regulation of Gene Expression.- An Overview of Small RNAs.- Control of Gene Expression by mRNA Transport and Turnover.
This book presents some of the most recent, novel and fascinating examples of transcriptional and posttranscriptional control of gene expression in plants and, where appropriate, provides comparison to notable examples of animal gene regulation.
Assembles the most up-to-date information regarding higher plant gene regulation into a single text
Highlights lesser known modes of gene regulation in plants
Provide a background for identifying future areas of research and ideas for application of this information to agriculturally important plants
