Cell Differentiation and Gene Expression (Developed by SEPUP)

kit #606S

Q: If all human body cells have the same genome, how does this lead to so many different types of cells and cell products?

A: The expression of specific genes regulates cell differentiation and cell functions.

In this highly illustrative activity, students investigate and model gene expression as it relates to cell differentiation. They consider how various physiological events affect gene expression in each of four different cell types.

  • The expression of specific genes regulates cell differentiation and cell functions.
  • Somatic cells in an individual organism have the same genome, but selectively express the genes for production of characteristic proteins.
  • The proteins that a cell produces determine that cell’s phenotype.
