Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

The mechanisms underlying transcriptional activation and repression have become much clearer. Recent evidence suggests that transcription factors that do not bind DNA directly, the co-activators and co-repressors, mediate a large number of cell signaling events. Their association with histone acetylases, to mediate activation, or deacetylases, to mediate repression, provide a model for explaining how gene expression is regulated.
