During macronuclear differentiation in ciliated protozoa, most amazing "DNA gymnastics" takes place, which includes DNA excision, DNA elimination, DNA reorganization, and DNA-specific amplification. Although the morphological events occurring during macronuclear development are well described, a detailed knowledge of the molecular mechanisms and the regulation of this differentiation process is still missing. However, recently several models have been proposed for the molecular regulation of… CONTINUE READING
