Nuclear Processes and Oncogenes
The nuclear processes considered are not those involved in power plants or bomb testing, whose relationship with oncogenes is well known. Instead the 12 papers from the September 1990 symposium in Cambridge, Massachusetts, discuss the function and structure of nuclear proteins encoded by oncogenes and tumor suppressor genes. They also explore the relationship between the biochemical properties of such proteins and the regulation of transcription. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
