About this book

Describes how genes are controlled and expressed, or not, in response to environmental signals, and examine ways that molecular mechanisms underlying gene expression apply to many other biological regulatory processes. Specific chapter coverage includes mechanisms found in bacteria, which of these is mostly highly exploited in higher organisms, and how this molecular strategy relates to other enzymatic processes, including those involving kinases, RNA splicing enzymes, proteases, and others.
