Nuclear microenvironments: an architectural platform for the convergence and integration of transcriptional regulatory signals

Abstract

Functional interrelationships between the intranuclear organization of nucleic acids and regulatory proteins are obligatory for fidelity of transcriptional activation and repression. In this article, using the Runx/AML/Cbfa transcription factors as a paradigm for linkage between nuclear structure and gene expression we present an overview of growing insight into the dynamic organization and assembly of regulatory machinery for gene expression at microenvironments within the nucleus. We address contributions of nuclear microenvironments to the convergence and integration of regulatory signals that mediate transcription by supporting the combinatorial assembly of regulatory complexes.

PlumX Metrics

PlumX Metrics provide insights into the ways people interact with individual pieces of research output (articles, conference proceedings, book chapters, and many more) in the online environment. Examples include, when research is mentioned in the news or is tweeted about. Collectively known as PlumX Metrics, these metrics are divided into five categories to help make sense of the huge amounts of data involved and to enable analysis by comparing like with like.
