  • January 2019: when Transcription Meets Replication

    Conflicting activities necessary for the expression, the maintenance and the propagation of genomes need to be coordinated. Just like one's liberty to swing fists ends where another's nose begins, coordination is achieved through a tight control of where and when directly opposed activities take place. In a study published recently in eLife, researchers from the Libri team are now showing that replication factors generally "protect" sites where replication initiates by terminating incoming transcription, and that the low levels of transcription that enter origins of replication affect their firing efficiency.

  • January 2019 : Cell shape changes and cytoskeleton adaptation to migrate into complex environments

    Cell migration is an essential biological process that drives tissue and organ formation during embryo development, and also helps protect the body through immune response and wound healing mechanisms.

  • January 2019: General Regulatory Factors: guardians of transcription fidelity

    What is a transcription factor? Classical biology tells us that a transcription factor binds to a promoter and activates (or represses) gene expression by promoting (or inhibiting) the initiation of transcription. What about transcription factors that activates gene expression by inhibiting initiation?
