Gene-specific repression of transcription plays a central role in gene regulation. This is true for the spatial control of gene activity in development, during which boundaries of gene expression are often determined by the spatially restricted localization or activity of transcriptional repressors (Mannervik et al. 1999). It is also true for the control of gene expression by extracellular signals, in which genes are often maintained in an off state by repressor proteins until signal… Expand
