    Behe Responds

  • Activation and/or deactivation of distinct genes (possible candidates: SpoT, recA, LexA) in response to various stresses will result in the downstream regulation of specific DNA replication machinery and mismatch repair mechanisms, resulting in a shift towards a specific transversion and/or transition mutation frequency in affected genes.

    A Genomic Balancing Act

  • The shift in transition and transversion mutation frequency is not random, but as a result of a controlled response.

    A Genomic Balancing Act

  • Epigenetic control of transversion and transition mutations and their effect on protein geometry and functionality.
