Furthermore, the predicted structure of ZNF132 includes 18 C2H2 ZNF motifs and one Kruppel- associated box domain, suggesting that it functions as a transcriptional repressor, whereas other cellular functions remain undetermined (Abildgaard et al.
This agent, called key, will inhibit the repressor action over the recombinase gene, allowing its expression, which will unlock the expression the gene of interest.
If the putative CA repressor hormone is in fact a CHH neuropeptide, it would not be the first time that this hormone family has been implicated in osmoregulation.
Their findings, published September 28 in Nature, show that over evolutionary time, primate genomes have undergone repeated episodes in which mutations in jumping genes allowed them to escape repression, which drove the evolution of new repressor genes, and so on.
The protein Chrono binds to the regulatory region of clock genes, with its repressor function oscillating in a circadian manner.
Repressor means a person who has a repressive coping style that is both an automatic and an intentional defensive strategy, a kind of avoidant way of coping with aversive events through not thinking about any painful or distressing things (Weinberger, Schwartz, & Davidson, 1979).
