Some genes (like those that build proteins that help convert sugar to energy) are on almost all of the time in almost every cell, but most genes are on (or most active) only at select times, during particular situations (for example, during cell division or gastrointestinal inflammation), or during particular moments in embryological development (such as during the leg-growing, tail-shedding process of tadpole-to-frog metamorphosis).
