The Induction of Two Similar Enzymes by One Inducer. A Test Case for Shared Genetic Information


Title:
The Induction of Two Similar Enzymes by One Inducer. A Test Case for Shared Genetic Information
Creator:
Nirenberg, Marshall W.
Date:
1960
Description:
Marshall Nirenberg argues that genetic information does not appear to be shared, but rather serves as an inducer for two similar enzymes in different metabolic pathways. This was an important step in delineating the relationship between genetic components and their expression.
