Genetic control mechanisms and genetic regulatory systems


Abstract

The concepts of Genetic Control Mechanisms (GCMs) and Genetic Regulation Systems (GRSs) are discussed, and the nature and significance of their efficient functioning is made explicit. These GRSs, in interaction with the environment, and as a result of their high degree of functional efficiency, give rise to a biological system (organism) while at the same time they establish and maintain, at all its levels of organization, the genetic steady-state (GSS) or genetic homeostasis, presented as a technical interpretation of life. The relevance of some aspects of the genome, development, birth, genetic individuality, the life cycle and the life span, evolution and biocollapse (death), with the consequent detachment of the bioenergeme (BEG) is historically elaborated upon. The Spanish version of this article was written in 1970 and published in 1972, and it is detailed 50 years later for its English version, updated in some bioenergemal (BEL) aspects.
