Expression in trans - (Jan/24/2012 )
I have been reading papers that mention 'expression of gene in trans'
What does that mean? Is it the same as 'introducing a gene into a cell on a plasmid and then expressing it'
Any help is appreciated. Thanks folks.
'introducing a gene into a cell on a plasmid and then expressing it' - This is generally referred to as exogenous expression. I believe "trans" is another, albeit odd way to describe this.
