Gene Expression and Epigenetics

Regulation of gene expression includes a wide range of mechanisms that are used by cells to increase or decrease the production of specific gene products (protein or RNA), and is informally termed gene regulation. Sophisticated programs of gene expression are widely observed in biology, for example to trigger developmental pathways, respond to environmental stimuli, or adapt to new food sources. Virtually any step of gene expression can be modulated, from transcriptional initiation, to RNA processing, and to the post-translational modification of a protein.

Gene regulation is essential for viruses, prokaryotes and eukaryotes as it increases the versatility and adaptability of an organism by allowing the cell to express protein when needed. Histone, DNA modifying enzymes and chromatin remodelling factors are major area to concentrate.

Epigenetics is defined as heritable changes in gene activity and expression that occur without alteration in DNA sequence. It is known these non-genetic alternations are tightly regulated by two major epigenetic modifications: chemical modifications to the cytosine residues of DNA (DNA methylation) and histone proteins associated with DNA. Histone, DNA modifying enzymes and chromatin remodelling factors are major area to concentrate. Different variation in structure leads to Repressive chromatin which can be analysed through Chromatin re-modelling during transcription.
