- mRNA) and then translated into protein as well as Genes that are transcribed into RNA — such as transfer RNA (tRNA) and ribosomal RNA (rRNA) — but not translated into protein. Interest in gene expression has been both biologic and commercial. (Patents have been granted on human gene expression. For example, a firm called Gene Logic received a US patent covering a method of gene expression analysis.)
* * *1. the flow of genetic information from gene to protein. 2. the process, or the regulation of the process, by which the effects of a gene are manifested. 3. the manifestation of a heritable trait in an individual carrying the gene or genes that determine it.
