Transcription of genes coding for metazoan spliceosomal snRNAs by RNA polymerase II (U1, U2, U4, U5) or RNA polymerase III (U6) is dependent upon a unique, positionally conserved regulatory element referred to as the proximal sequence element (PSE). Previous studies in the organism Drosophila melanogaster indicated that as few as three nucleotide(More)
Taking a previously developed game involving mathematical knots, we changed the player who normally has the winning strategy so that they now play “randomly”. Using previous results for the class of twist knot shadows, we calculated the probability that the “loser” will win. Specifically, we found that on a twist knot with n crossings, if n is odd the(More)
