Gene expression: UV-induced coupling


to be a key response to DNA damage because many apoptotic genes are alternatively spliced, but the under­ lying mechanism is unknown. A new study by Kornblihtt and colleagues reports that ultraviolet (UV) irradia­ tion triggers co­transcriptional AS, through the hyperphosphorylation of the carboxy­terminal domain (CTD) on RNA polymerase II and through the… (More)
