Dominant phenotype(Easy question but it is important for me)

What is the recessiveness? I think that recessivenes is not expressing protein is not true explaining. Actually, Recessiveness is about phenotype. There is two or more allele in locus. Dominant allele provide dominant phenotype, recessive allele provide recessive, masket phenotype. Recessive allele is not physically repressed like imprinting or epistatis. Expression could be done; but there is no regulative or functional expression for exhibiting in trait. So, trait is masked due to dominant allele's trait. Is that true?

There are no easy questions. I believe that there is an association between the two proteins synthetized by both alleles. In the association the dominant protein inhibits the function of the recessive protein.

Buti this event is epistasis. Physical repressed mechanism
