|Regulatory sequence||A DNA base sequence that controls gene expression.|
|Base sequence||The order of nucleotide bases in a DNA molecule. Length is usually defined as the number of base pairs. Cf. sequence, DNA sequence.|
|Gene expression||The process by which a gene's coded information is converted into the structures present and operating in the cell. Expressed genes include those that are transcribed into mRNA and then translated into protein and those that are transcribed into RNA but not translated into protein (e.g., transfer and ribosomal RNAs).
The degree of expression is called expressivity.
