translation from DNA

... on RNA level), but further there is amplification of the signal (there can be thousands copies of each mRNA, each giving rise to hundreds of protein molecules), also, during replication of DNA the protein synthesis would have to be shut down and there could be other reasons. But as said, ...

Gene Upregulation/Increased Expression in HMG-CoA Reductase

... tried to differentiate the two and left me pretty confused. From my understanding, increased gene expression will result in an increase in the protein product that a gene is coding for. Meaning that if you increased expression of a gene that codes for an enzyme, it would result in upregulation ...
