Induction

Last modified September 6, 2013

This subsection of the ‘Expression’ section reports the experimentally proven effects of inducers and repressors (usually chemical compounds or environmental factors) on the level of protein (or mRNA) expression (up-regulation, down-regulation, constitutive expression).

Example: Q7XTE8, P29305

Transcriptional regulation by transcription factors or repressors is only rarely described in UniProtKB. In some specific cases, however, we indicate such information without going into details.

Example: Q59385

This subsection does not describe the regulation of activity, which can be found in the subsection ‘Enzyme regulation’ for enzymes, and in other subsections, such as ‘Function’.
