Answer to Question #81612 in Genetics for susan Guido
What is the advantage of altering the protein that is made, instead of just stopping protein production?
Altering an existing protein is easier than just stopping protein production because to stop a protein requires a large input of energy in terms of ATP whereas altering an already made protein involves lesser energy expenditure. Altering a protein in terms of requirement involves an easier process such an s methylation, oxidation, biotinylation, etc.
