The glands that make hormones are not themselves affected by their products; therefore most hormones are produced within secretory
vesicles by the Golgi apparatus.
The vesicles fuse with the cell surface membrane, releasing their…

Transcription of a gene can be prevented by protein repressor molecules attaching to the DNA of the promoter region ­ this blocks the
attachment sites for transcription factors. Protein repressor molecules can also attach to the transcription factors themselves, preventing
them from forming the complex.

The control of transcription initiation…
