A Review on Regulation of Gene in Eukaryotes
Author(s): Sasmita Panda
Gene expression in eukaryotes can be induced by environmental factors like heat and light and by chemical molecules such as hormones and growth factors. Hormone- induced gene expression is mediated by proteins that interact with the hormones. Some of these hormone receptors act directly as transcription factors by binding to DNA sequences in the vicinity of a gene; others control transcription indirectly through a signal transduction path way that targets transcription factors to a gene.
