    Scientists portray regions of DNA that sway MECP2 expression

    Researchers at Baylor College of Medicine and the Jan and Dan Duncan Neurological Research Institute at Texas Children’s Hospital (NRI) have identified and characterized two regions of DNA required for the proper expression of Mecp2/MECP2 in mice and humans. These findings, published in Genes & Development, are helping to shed light on the purpose of
