Differential gene expression
differential gene expression
Glossary of "Evolution (4th ed.)" by Futuyma & Kirkpatrick (2017)
- Differences in the time, location, and/or quuantitative level at which a gene expresses the protein it encodes. Differential gene expression involves differences between species, developmental stages, or physiological states in the specific cells, tissues, structures, or body segments that express a given gene.
Glossary of "Life (9th ed.)" by Sadava et al. (2011)
- The hypothesis that, given that all cells contain all genes, what makes one cell type different from another is the difference in transcription and translation of those genes.
