regulates (processual)

curator note

Regulation precludes parthood; the regulatory process may not be within the regulated process.


p regulates q iff p is causally upstream of q, the execution of p is not constant and varies according to specific conditions, and p influences the rate or magnitude of execution of q due to an effect either on some enabler of q or some enabler of a part of q.
