End products of biosynthetic pathways typically repress expression of the associated enzymes, whereas substrates of degradative pathways typically induce the expression of the associated enzymes. Signal

Future Challenges transduction allows a cell to respond to changing conditions outside of that cell. The expression of some genes changes randomly, presumably enhancing the chances of survival of at least a subset of a population of cells under varying environmental conditions.
