How can gene expression be regulated in an individual cell in a multicellular eukaryotic organism?

DNA must be tightly coiled into chromosomes for transcription to occur.

  

The expression of specific genes can be turned on and off by compounds secreted by cells adjacent to the cell.

  

All of the genes are translated, but only some of the resulting proteins are functional.

  

Gene transcription is regulated primarily by the presence or absence of specific nutrients.
