GENE EXPRESSION 2 Gene expression is the mechanism of using the information from a gene to create a functional product of the gene such as proteins for those genes with protein coding genes and functional Ribonucleic acid (RNA). The progression of gene expression is used by all life including the prokaryotes, viruses, and eukaryotes. Therefore, gene expression provides control by a cell over function and structure, and it takes part in the process of cell differentiation, adaptability, flexibility, and morphogenesis in any organism. Regulation of a gene can also function as a substrate needed for evolution because the quantity of gene progression, its location and timing are known to have adverse effects on the actions of a gene in multicellular organisms or a cell. The steps involved in gene translation process include transcription, linking the RNA, transformation, and post-transformational alteration of protein. Regulation of gene transcription in eukaryotic cells is a more complicated process than in bacteria, but the usual basic principles apply. The progression of eukaryotic genes is regulated at the step where transcription begins; however, in other cases, transcription can be altered at subsequent steps. Therefore, gene expression in eukaryotes is under the control of proteins, which bind to certain sequences that regulate and restrain the activity of Ribonucleic acid polymerase (Buckley, 2012). The main aim of regulating transcription of a gene is accomplished by the joined actions of the several transcriptional and controlling proteins. Also, the packing of Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) into chromatin and their modification generate other stages of complexity to the overall monitoring of the eukaryotic gene progression process.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
