The phenotype of a cell can be considered as the sum total of all the physiologic processes which are currently active in that cell. The genotype of a cell is the total physiologic potential of the cell, regardless of which processes are actually in use at a given moment. The difference between the phenotype and the genotype of a cell is a function of the regulatory mechanisms available to the cell, and it is these mechanisms which are the subject of this chapter.
