They are grouped into simple, transitional and stratified epithelia, which line the cavities and surfaces of structures throughout the body, and also form(More)
The heterogeneous nuclear ribonucleoproteins (hnRNPs) comprise a large family of proteins that play important roles in telomere biogenesis, DNA repair, cellular signaling, and the regulation of expression at both the transcriptional and translational levels. One of the most extensively studied hnRNP family members, hnRNP K, has been implicated in a variety(More)
