epigenetic inheritanceepigenetische Vererbung (ger.)

  • A mode of inheritance that depends on cellular mechanism but is not related to the base sequence of DNA.

    [Genetic inheritance can transmit only from parents to children, whereas the epigenetic inheritance of material culture can transmit to an entire contemporary generation, obviously a great gain in efficiency.

    the effects on pigment production seen in mass cultures and high levels of H are interpreted as “modulations” or transient changes in expression of the differentiated state, rather than any alteration of the basic epigenetic inheritance of the cells themselves.
