Post-transcriptional Gene Regulation in Human Disease. Translational Epigenetics Volume 32

  • Book
  • August 2022
  • Elsevier Science and Technology
  • ID: 5548606

Post-transcriptional Gene Regulation in Human Disease, a new volume in the Translational Epigenetics book series, offers a thorough overview and discussion of post-transcriptional genetic control mechanisms and their roles across various pathologies and human developmental outcomes, along with regulatory mechanisms targeted for therapeutic approaches. The book is broadly divided in two parts: early chapters describe the basics of post-transcriptional gene regulation, associated epigenetic mechanisms, the role of RNA binding proteins, the evolution of post-transcriptional gene regulation, and methods to study these mechanisms. The second half of the book includes deeper discussion of post-transcriptional gene regulation across specific diseases and therapeutics targets. Various post-transcriptional events, including alternative splicing and polyadenylation, mRNA stability, and miRNAs and their involvement in the disease progression, are examined in detail.
