Gene Regulation - 11 Gene Rearrangement Some genes have a number of different possible arrangements for their nucleotide sequence. The genes that code for antibody formation have multiple possibilities. For each antibody, a core sequence is coded, but additional code, making each antibody unique is pretty much randomly determined. Coding for Antibodies Common Antibody Structure Two Specific Antibodies Chemical Activators Hormones (or other chemicals) can function as signal molecules that trigger

Unformatted text preview: signal transduction pathways in cells. Signal transduction pathways often result in the synthesis of transcription factors. Signal transduction pathways are equally important for chemical messaging in plants and animals. Which transcription factors get synthesized to activate genes depends on the signal molecule, and the transduction pathways triggered....
