Dynamic gene expression
Professor James Eberwine explains that gene expression within a cell is dynamic - changing in various ways as a cell ages.
Gene expression within a cell is dynamic. At the birth of the cell you have certain levels of gene expression, as a cell ages you get different levels of gene expression. Various types of pharmacological behavioral disease-related in cells can change gene expression. It is those changes that underline again the physiology associated with the function that youâ€™re looking at.

Professor James Eberwine discusses what we might see were we to take a snapshot of the internal dynamics of a living cell, which might resemble Grand Central Station during rush hour.
2068. Experience changes gene expression
Professor James Eberwine describes three ways in which experiences can change the gene-expression: changing RNA translation, movement, and potentially production.
