However, most scientists and physicians who have studied the puzzle of why certain people get the disease while others don't are convinced that heredity-the genes
we inherit from our ancestors-is a very important factor.
The presence of complementary transcripts has many functions like genomic organization and gene
regulation in prokaryotes (Inouye and Delihas, 1988).
