Gene Expression

HideShow resource information

       Genes store information, and this can be used to code for protein molecules and RNA. Gene expression is the process by which the DNA is read to produce a specific protein or section of functional RNA. Cancer cells are cells that have lost the ability to differentiate – gene expression no longer happens. Each cell contains all of the genetic information; however it does not need to be expressed in each cell. For example, genes that code muscle proteins (like actin and myosin) are only expressed in
