Normal Gene Activation &
Arsenic-Inhibited Gene Activation
This figure was commissioned by Dartmouth Toxic Metals Research program at Dartmouth Medical School to introduce a research project designed to discover the mechanism of how arsenic interferes with the normal function of a cell's gene activation complex, specifically how arsenic might interract with the glucocorticoid receptor.
The figure was used for education, outreach, and to garner support and grant money to fund the research.
