Eukaryotic Gene regulation What are three fundamental facts about gene expression 1. All cells in a multicellular organism contains the exact same genetic complement 2. any cell expresses only a small fraction of its genes at any given time 3. regulation of the expression of specific genes most common at the level of transcription Gene expression depends on The cell receiving the signal in which then regulation can occur in many steps What is the importance of transcription factors They are necessary for transcription of all genes What are control elements Transcription factor binding sites Transcription factors that are activators have what function Recruit proteins that acetylate near by histones What is the function of transcription factors that act
