Eric traveled to DC to give a seminar in the Chemistry Department of Georgetown University. He discussed recent progress the lab has made in understanding the regulation of gene expression in Mycobacterium tuberculosis.
A new manuscript from the Stallings Lab shows how our flux calculations can provide context for understanding in vivo transcription regulation.
Drake used stopped-flow experiments and kinetic modeling to show that both CarD and RbpA slow promoter escape in Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Interestingly, they also have effects on the rates of initial transcription. Click here to read[…]
