    General Notes

    Muscle-Specific Regulation of Transcription: A Catalog of Regulatory Elements by Laura L. L-pez and James W. Fickett presents a summary of published information on muscle-specific transcriptional regulation.

    Pedro's BioMolecular Research Tools is a collection of WWW links to information and services useful to molecular biologists. It provides links to molecular biology search and analysis tools; bibliographic, text, and Web search services; guides and tutorials; and biological and biochemical journals and newsletters.

    The World Wide Web Virtual Library: Biosciences points to virtual library pages for Biomolecules, and Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. Each of these pages presents a long list of Web resources. The World Wide Web Virtual Library Biomolecules covers molecular sequence and structure databases, metabolic pathway databases, and other lists of Web resources. The World Wide Web Virtual Library: Biochemistry and Molecular Biology is a list of resources listed by provider.

    Cell & Molecular Biology Online is a well-organized list of Web resources for cell and molecular biologists. For each resource, a brief description is provided.

    CSUBIOWEB, the California State University Biological Sciences Web server, provides links to other Web sites on cell biology and molecular biology.

    The Dictionary of Cell Biology (London: Academic Press, 1995) defines transcription, leucine zipper, and other terms used in this research commentary.

    Biotech Life Science Dictionary is a free resource that defines terms in biochemistry, biotechnology, botany, cell biology, and genetics, including terms used in this research commentary.

    Protein Synthesis is a tutorial on the processes involved in Protein Synthesis, starting from the genetic information in DNA, through transcription to produce messenger RNA, and translation of mRNA to a polypeptide. This tutorial is a section of Principles of Protein Structure Using the Internet, a Birkbeck College (University of London) accredited Advanced Certificate course.

    1. Reading the Messages in Genes describes transcription and provides a diagram. This page is a unit of Access Excellence, a national educational program sponsored by Genentech that provides high school biology teachers access to their colleagues, scientists, and critical sources of new scientific information via the Web.

    2. The MIT Biology Hypertextbook is a Web-based textbook developed for introductory biology courses at MIT. Central Dogma provides an illustrated description of the process of transcription.

    3. DNA binding proteins, enhancers, and the control of gene expression describes transcription and transcription factors. This page was developed by Ronald R. D. Croy as a component of Course Notes for Molecular Genetics I Lectures.

    4. Control of Gene Expression in Eukaryotes by Phillip McClean is a tutorial on gene regulation. The Transcription Complex provides a brief discussion of transcription factors.

    5. The Mechanisms of Gene Regulation are outlined in Microbial Genetics Lecture Notes, developed by L. S. Pierson III and C. Kennedy for a class at the University of Arizona.

    6. The Wolberger Lab lists publications of Cynthia Wolberger and her co-workers.
