Position-effect

Position-effect variegation was originally an effect observed in translocation experiments. When a gene was translocated to an other chromosome its expression changed. Now position effect mutations are mutations in regulatory units far more distant from gene. Sometimes, such position-effect mutations may change expression of several genes.
