    Functional divergence of paralogous transcription factors supported the evolution of biomineralization in echinoderms

    Jian Ming Khor, Charles A Ettensohn
    A gene duplication event has permitted the functional specialization of a homeodomain transcription factor through changes in exon-intron organization and these changes have supported the evolution of a major, phylum-level morphological novelty.

    Cis-regulatory evolution integrated the Bric-à-brac transcription factors into a novel fruit fly gene regulatory network

    Maxwell J Roeske et al.
    The conserved biochemical activity of the duplicate Bab transcription factors were integrated into the regulatory hierarchy of an evolving gene regulatory network by binding site gains in a target gene's cis-regulatory region.

    Transcription factor clusters regulate genes in eukaryotic cells

    Adam JM Wollman et al.
    Transcription factors form clusters independently of the presence of DNA, which regulate target genes as opposed to individual monomers, addressing a longstanding question of how transcription factors can find gene targets so quickly.

    Dynamic control of gene regulatory logic by seemingly redundant transcription factors

    Zohreh AkhavanAghdam et al.
    Seemingly redundant homologous transcription factors play distinct and cooperative roles in time-dependent combinatorial gene regulation and enable dynamic control of heterogeneity in the gene responses to environmental stresses.

    Conservation of transcription factor binding specificities across 600 million years of bilateria evolution

    Kazuhiro R Nitta et al.
    Drosophila has almost all transcription factor binding specificities available to humans; and human transcription factors with divergent specificities operate in cell types that are not found in fruit flies.

    The translation elongation factor eEF1A1 couples transcription to translation during heat shock response

    Maria Vera et al.
    Eukaryotic translation elongation factor 1A1 controls the process of heat shock response, from transcriptional activation of the HSP70 gene, to HSP70 mRNA stabilization, nuclear export, and translation.

    DNA methylation presents distinct binding sites for human transcription factors

    Shaohui Hu et al.
    A comprehensive study of human transcription factors reveals that a greater number of these proteins bind to methylated DNA sequences than previously thought.

    Pharmacological targeting of the transcription factor SOX18 delays breast cancer in mice

    Jeroen Overman et al.
    A novel molecular strategy to block transcription factor activity using small molecule interference of multiple protein-protein interactions is reported.
