Is enzyme a gene? Cause i read this article. And i don't know what the gene is. "A gene taken from daffodil is responsible for producing the enzyme phytoene synthase. The gene is controlled by a rice promoter and is only expressed in the endosperm. phytoene synthase catalyzes the reaction that convertss two GGDP molecules to phytoene, the first step in provitamin - A synthesis." IS the gene Phytoene Synthase? is it both enzyme and a gene.

Doesn't one cistron code for a particular polipeptide chain? If so, more cistrons can code for one enzyme, cause some enzymes and other proteins have more than one polipeptide chain(cuarternary structure)
