Description
Transcription and Gene Regulation ● The ability to induce the proper genes at the proper times is critical in the growth and development of all organisms and for their ability to respond to their environment ● The importance of gene expression becomes evident when we realize defects in gene regulation often results in disease Steps in Controlling Gene Expression ● The central dogma in its simplest form is: DNA--> RNA--> Protein ● Transcription (copying DNAinto RNA) and translation (process of decoding an RNAto synthesize protein) are two key processes in gene expression ● The RNAintermediary allows a step of amplification since in contrast to DNAwhere unit copies exist, RNAs for different messages can be produced at dramatically different levels ● In addition, RNAis unstable in cellular environment thus can be rapidly degraded, providing a mechanism to turn genes off Points of Gene Regulation in a Euk
