Mitochondria divide by binary fission. The regulation of this division differs between eukaryotes. In many single-celled eukaryotes, their growth and division is linked to the cell cycle.
Your question refers to differential gene expression and methods of Eukaryotic gene regulation. This is a very broad question for there are a lot of methods to control gene expression. They can function as transcription control, mRNA processing control, translational control, post-translational control and so on in eukaryotes. In prokaryotes, the methods ...
The difference boils down to UnTranslated Regions. A CDS or coding sequence is the part of a transcript that is actually translated into protein. Therefore a CDS will (almost) always start with an AUG codon and stop at one of the three STOP codons (UAA,UGA,UAG). The transcript however (note that I am referring to mature transcripts that have already been ...
The definition of coding sequence is, to my mind, a little confusing. It is actually the sequence of DNA in the gene which has the same sequence as the corresponding mRNA (except it has T instead of U). Now, you will often see definitions that say that the coding sequence is the DNA that is transcribed, but this isn't really correct because during ...
