Two genes that are contiguous in the genome...
Posted 29 October 2010 - 02:50 AM
I have a question that has been filling my mind. Probably I should know this, but...
Is it frequent that a gene A have a regulatory role on the expression, transcription or function of gene B if A is just preceeding B in the genome? I mean, if in a given chromosome you have A followed by B, can A be regulating B by any means?
Thank you in advance.

HomeBrew, yes, I also remembered that and but I was wondering if that occurs not only in bacteria but also in eukaryotes, because my organism is an eukaryote.

If anyone knows more about this please say something.
