A model is developed based on data from diverse lines of inquiry, describing the possible role of charge transfer in the timing and coordination of DNA replication and gene expression in eukaryotic cells. Emphasis is placed on a possible electrical process which participates in the simultaneous base-pair opening in many regions of DNA preceding replication, and a similar coordination of gene expression by simultaneous generation of base-pair openings around promoter and transcriptional start… CONTINUE READING
