The mRNA display approach to in vitro protein selection is based upon the puromycin-mediated formation of a covalent bond between an mRNA and its gene product. This technique can be used to identify peptide sequences involved in macromolecular recognition, including those identical or homologous to natural ligand epitopes. To demonstrate this approach, we(More)
The thyroid hormone receptor (TR) and retinoic acid receptor (RAR) isoforms have the capacity to silence gene expression in the absence of their ligands on target response elements. This active repression is mediated by the ability of the corepressors, nuclear receptor corepressor (NCoR) and silencing mediator of retinoid and thyroid hormone receptors(More)
