In this Lab, the effect of amino acid availability as regulating factor of every protein synthesis is investigated
The principle: the availability of amino acids influences gene expression
The relative abundance of some amino acids can be considered a regulatory factor of protein translation and it can be
said that the AA availability can influence gene expression in addition to other mechanisms such as the epigenetic control.
When a protein is enriched in some AA, their availability will control the production of that protein.
The availability of AA can be influenced by many local and general events; for example, any metabolic process
consuming AA as intermediate metabolites, starvation or the modulation of AA transporters mediating their entry into
