Control of Eukaryotic Gene Expression

GENES-BWHD1Q

Eukaryotic gene expression is controlled via several mechanisms.

One mechanism of gene expression regulation is through controlling access to specific

channels, allowing the passage of a messenger RNA across the nuclear

. This process requires that the messenger RNA be recognized by specific receptors lining the interior of the nuclear pores.
