Sample text

Three principal determinants of variability in clinical expression or incomplete penetrance of a given genetic disorder can occur: environmental factors, the effects of other genetic loci, and random chance. , lysine oxidation). That other genes can modify the effects of disease-causing mutations is a reflection of the overlay of genetic diversity on primary disease phenotype. , gene-environment interactions). These interactions are important in polygenic diseases; gene-gene and geneenvironment interactions can modify the phenotypic expression of the disease.

Four levels of organization involving transcription factors, RNAs, chromatin structure, and epigenetic factors orchestrate gene expression in the mammalian genome. Transcriptional regulators bind to specific DNA motifs that positively or negatively control the expression of neighboring genes. The information contained in the genome must be transformed into functional units of RNA or protein products. How DNA is packed and modified represents additional modes of gene regulation by disrupting the access of transcription factors from DNA-binding motifs.

The recent discovery and identification of small RNAs (21-mer to 24-mer clusters), called micro-RNAs (miRNAs), adds further complexity to the regulation of gene expression in the eukaryotic genome. First discovered in worms more than 15 years ago, miRNAs are conserved noncoding strands of RNA that bind by Watson-Crick base pairing to the 3′-untranslated regions of target mRNAs, enabling gene silencing of protein expression at the translational level. Gene-encoding miRNAs exhibit tissue-specific expression and are interspersed in regions of the genome unrelated to known genes.
