If induction tells cells what to do, how do they remember these instructions for a lifetime? ? DETERMINATION
Background image of page 2
DETERMINATION: internal and self-perpetuating changes that distinguish a cell & its descendents from other cells and commit them to a specialized course In other words, a cell is set to become a certain kind of cell before it actually becomes that type of cell. And usually there’s no turning back. This concept differs from fate in that for a time a cell’s fate can often be changed by changing environment; it differs from DIFFERENTIATION because this is overt cell specialization. FATE: what a cell will become at a later time--its future! DIFFERENTIATION: the actual elaboration of a cell’s fate
