Gene Expression provides research papers on selected topics in gene expression, presented at the 11th meeting of the Federation of European Biochemical Societies, held at Copenhagen in August 1977. The book presents research knowledge provided by eminent researchers in the field of biochemistry. Each chapter contains material that is important to other researchers, such as on initiation mechanism of protein synthesis in prokaryotes; translocation mechanism of the ribosome; and analysis of ribosomal translocation by drugs. Mechanisms for the intracellular compartmentation of newly synthesized proteins; RNA synthesis and control; the sub-structure of nucleosome core particles; and future prospects on chromosome structure and function are detailed as well. The text will be of use to researchers and workers in the field of medicine, pharmacology, gene therapy, and biochemistry.
