Suppose a particular protein is produced in excess of the cell’s needs. What kind of mechanism will intervene to stop production?
Suppose a particular protein is produced in excess of the cell’s needs. Homeostatic mechanism will intervene to stop production
This is basically the tendency of the body to seek and maintain a condition of balance whenever there is a deviation from the optimum conditions
Precisely, the human body include mechanisms that help regulate the body which even includes the cells and the adjusting of these enables the body to constantly be in a steady state and if there is any deviation, cause either negative feedback or positive feedback to bring the condition back to normal. If a part of protein is produced in excess of the cells nee, what happens is that there will will be what we term as down-regulation, which is the decrease in expression of a gene that codes for the given par of the protein. This happens when regulatory proteins bind to DNA and send signals that indirectly control the rate of gene expression and also can be achieved by the body having a cellular decrease in the number of receptors to the protein part reducing its effects
