Epigenetic Regulation of the Mammalian Cell

Figure 3

Illustration of the multi-compartmental dynamic steady state.

The figure illustrates the multi-compartmental dynamic steady state initiated by the transcription of coding sequences to mRNA, which is translated to peptide and finally yields active gene products which are depleted (block arrow) through use. There may be additional depletion (not indicated) by spontaneous decay from the product compartments.
