Term Information [More information on negative regulation of gene expression]

Accession
GO:0010629
Name
negative regulation of gene expression
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
None
Definition
Any process that decreases the frequency, rate or extent of gene expression. Gene expression is the process in which a gene's coding sequence is converted into a mature gene product or products (proteins or RNA). This includes the production of an RNA transcript as well as any processing to produce a mature RNA product or an mRNA (for protein-coding genes) and the translation of that mRNA into protein. Protein maturation is included when required to form an active form of a product from an inactive precursor form. Source: GOC:dph, GOC:tb
Comment
This term covers any process that negatively regulates the rate of production of a mature gene product, and so includes processes that negatively regulate that rate by reducing the level, stability or availability of intermediates in the process of gene expression. For example, it covers any process that reduces the level, stability or availability of mRNA for translation and thereby reduces the rate of production of the encoded protein via translation.
