Induction mechanisms on cold-inducible genes.

Research overview:
Recently it has been found that cold is one of gene-modulators in bacteria and plants. The aim of this study is to identify cold-inducible genes in yeast and mammalina cells and to clarify molecular mechanisms of the cold induction of these genes. We have been using cDNA subtraction, differential display, DNA microarray for the screening of cold-inducible genes. Elongation factor-3 in yeast and mitochondrial ATPase subunit 6+8 in human hepatoblastoma cells were found to be cold-inducible genes.
