Summary
Each cell of higher organisms contains a nucleus where the genetic material is tightly packed. In order to utilize genes, parts of the genetic material need to be unpacked, and protein complexes are involved in the process. Other protein complexes, conversely, function to prevent access to genes disabling gene expression.
