Gene silencing by the thyroid hormone receptor.

Abstract

The thyroid hormone receptors (TR) are able to bind DNA and to repress transcription in the absence of thyroid hormone. This repression function is an important feature of TRs as aberrant silencing can lead to severe diseases and developmental abnormalities. TR utilizes different mechanisms to achieve repression of target genes including the recruitment of… (More)
