Example text

This reaction is not reversible but lends additional temporal control over recombinase-based mutation. If the ligand-binding domain is fused to a transcription factor, removal of hormone leads to inactivation of the fusion protein and gene downregulation. Another inducible method in use is the tetracycline (tet) regulatory system. In the classic design (tTA or tet-off), a fusion protein combining a bacterial tet repressor and a viral transactivation domain drives expression of the target transgene by binding to upstream tet operator sequences flanking the transgene transcription start site.

The ligands for the nuclear hormone receptors either diffuse passively into the cell or are produced within the cell during normal metabolism. In some cases, association between receptor and ligand takes place in the nucleus. In other cases, particularly the sex hormone receptors, the receptor is cytoplasmic and bound to chaperone proteins in the absence of ligand. Ligand binding dissociates the chaperones and allows translocation to the nucleus. Once they are nuclear, ligand-dimer complexes interact with DNA and recruit transcriptional regulators to effect their responses.

These oncogene studies therefore provided the early tools necessary to dissect the signaling pathways that control cell growth. Other important information, particularly on the control of cell survival, has come from the study of genetically tractable organisms such as fruit flies and the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans. More recently, whole genome sequencing projects have allowed the direct analysis of human clinical specimens for alterations in key signaling pathways. 3 Furthermore, there has been intense study of the perturbations that occur in intracellular signaling during cancer progression.
