What are histone deacetylase inhibitors?

OVERVIEW: Histone deacetylase inhibitors (HDIs) are the chemical compounds that inhibit histone deacetylase. Histone deacetylases (HDACs) enzymes removes acetyl group from the ε-amino groups of lysine residues which are located in the NH2 terminal tails of core histones. During gene expression DNA coils and uncoils around histones. Histone acetylases, acetylate the lysine residues in core […]

Are gene expression and protein synthesis are the same thing?

YES!!! gene expression and protein synthesis are the same thing Protein synthesis can be the type of gene expression that code for protein segments.DNA codes for RNA ( transcription) then RNA makes proteins (translation) which means DNA is not directly involved in protein synthesis directly. The synthesized RNA regulates the gene expression. There are about […]
