Although most researchers in biology tend to focus on very specific issues and questions about their preferred gene or pathway, sometimes we face situations in which nature presents us with a remarkable example of a gene with multiple functions. Since the discovery of the early growth response 1 (EGR1) gene in the mid eighties, several independent groups attributed its activation as an immediate early response gene to extracellular stimuli such as environmental cues, growth factors, irradiation… CONTINUE READING
