TitleTreisman, Richard Henry - Certificate of election as Fellow of the Royal Society: certificate of election to the Royal Society
DescriptionCitation typed
CitationRichard Treisman's research has focused on the mechanism and control of mRNA production in mammalian cells. He has made seminal discoveries about the control of c-fos proto-oncogene RNA synthesis by growth factor signals. His most significant achievements are: (i) the first detailed characterisation of a growth-factor controlled transcriptional regulatory sequence, the Serum Response Element (SRE); (ii) the identification, purification and molecular cloning of Serum Response Factor (SRF), a transcription factor that binds to the SRE; (iii) the elucidation of the molecular nature of proteins that bind DNA as a ternary complec (TCF) with SRF; (iv) his recent demonstration that the activity of the SRF/TCF ternary complex can be regulated by growth factor-induced phosphorylation.
