Both DNA replication and transcription are structurally asymmetric processes. An asymmetric nucleotide substitution pattern has been observed between the leading and the lagging strand, and between the coding and the noncoding strand, in eubacterial, viral, and organelle genomes. Similar studies in eukaryotes have been rare, because the origins of(More)
From the viewpoint of an evolutionary biologist, carcinogenesis should be looked upon as a protective mechanism against destruction of DNA. Because genes expressed in embryonic cells are covered and protected by heterochromatinization, they are the most appropriate 'alternate genes' compared to genes that are expressed already in somatic cells.
