Gene expression is regulated by sequence-specific protein–DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) interactions that occur within the cis-regulatory domains of genes. Genes that encode sequence-specific DNA-binding proteins both regulate and are regulated by the expression of other such genes. A set of genes whose activity is thus linked by sequence-specific cis-trans regulatory interactions constitutes a genetic network.
