Expressed gene

Expressed gene --> gene Expression

(Science: molecular biology) The full use of the information in a gene via transcription and translation leading to production of a protein and hence the appearance of the phenotype determined by that gene. Gene Expression is assumed to be controlled at various points in the sequence leading to protein synthesis and this control is thought to be the major determinant of cellular differentiation in eukaryotes.

What makes dominant allele dominant?

It's a matter of gene expression. The phenotype is the expression of the gene. The pathway to expression ... expression of the other. In some instances, it is because one allele isn't actually expressed, leaving the organism with a default phenotype. The dominant/recessive/codominant ...
