In somatic cells the level of myc transcription is not restricted to particular cell types but correlates closely with the rate of cell division. Such transcription involves the use of two active myc promoters and produces two messenger RNA species that are differentially represented among the transcripts of different tissues. In apparent contrast to somatic cells, mitotically and meiotically dividing germ cells have very few myc transcripts and appear to proliferate, at least for a few… CONTINUE READING
