DeJi~eitio, r Ge~e lrlt.~irm Much of tile attention and interest in modern molecular biology is fi~cussed on the regulation of gene expression. Factors influencing or mediating such regulation are often best studied using gene Alsions. Gene fusions can be defined its DNA constructions (perfi3rmed ill vitro or i~e Hvo) that result in the coding sequences from one gene (r@o,ter) being transcribed and/or translated under the direction of the controlling sequences of another gene (cmltrr Gene… CONTINUE READING
