Duplication of Regulatory Genes and Receptors

  • Susumu Ohno


The manner in which an organism is going to utilize functionally diverged duplicated genes is largely dependent upon whether or not duplicated structural genes can be placed under separate regulatory mechanisms. Although our ignorance on the genetic regulatory mechanism is profound, a discussion on the subject of gene duplication should by necessity consider duplication of regulatory genes.
