Predictable trends in protein noise

Nature Genetics volume 38, pages 610611 (2006) | Download Citation

Subjects

The process of gene expression is inherently stochastic and leads to differences in protein abundance from one cell to another. A new study shows that this protein noise is unexpectedly predictable, providing important new insights into the properties and origins of variability in gene expression.
