Figure 12.1Two ways in which genome activity is regulated

The genes on the left are subject to transient regulation and are switched on and off in response to changes in the extracellular environment. The genes on the right have undergone a permanent or semipermanent change in their expression pattern, resulting in the same three genes being expressed continuously.
