Caught in an epigenetic trap: flag waving consequences

Egypt concert-goers arrested for raising rainbow flag This is an example of “flag waving” consequences from another part of the world. They are accused of “public indecency” and “inciting immorality among young people”, the sources said following Monday’s arrests. Why? These protesters were probably caught in an epigenetic trap.

Positive feedback loops and epigenetic traps

Transcription factor trapping by RNA in gene regulatory elements Conclusion: …bidirectional transcription of active enhancers and promoters evolved, in part, to facilitate trapping of TFs at specific regulatory elements. The model also suggests that transcription of regulatory elements produces a positive-feedback loop that may contribute to the stability of gene expression programs in cells. The Positive feedback loops and epigenetic traps

An epigenetic trap (the sequel)

I will post this “sequel” before the “prequel” about light-induced amino acid substitutions because more attempts are being made to deny that the fact my colleagues and I detailed how epigenetic traps links the morphology and behavior of species from microbes to man.
