Muscle Regenerative Potential Is Ensured Epigenetically Through Promoter Proximal Pausing

To regenerate damaged muscle tissue, muscle stem cells must be turned into functional muscle cells–a process that requires control of gene expression through promoter proximal pausing.

A Symphony of Speciation

The regulation of gene expression by transcription enhancers is critical for cellular identity and the observable difference between species.
