In some situations multiple operons are controlled by the same regulatory protein; in these cases the operons form a regulon. 0000006558 00000 n The lactose operon (also known as the lac operon) is a set of genes that are specific for uptake and metabolism of lactose and is found in E. coli and other bacteria. 0 /Outlines When active, the lac repressor binds the lac operator and blocks transcription of lac operon (Figure 1). PNAS 52:1100-1107) found that ara operon is actually quite different in action from that of the lac operon based on three main facts: << 0000051554 00000 n (b) The repressor produced by regulator gene is in an active form and binds to the operator DNA preventing transcription initiation, (c) In the presence of inducer, the repressor molecules are inactivated by the inducer molecules so, that they can no longer bind to the operator DNA. x��koǑ�����@�E����n�5��YK�DR��C�469�� �����{�-���%K:��ٙ�9)XY��wa����\|)�����VU����7�υ`�u�>�ܾ�/�����T��_ ɗ��?���釪��?������A�? 1 /S The lac operon uses a two-part control mechanism to ensure that the cell expends energy producing the enzymes encoded by the lac operon only when necessary. /Transparency Operons are present in prokaryotes (bacteria and archaea), but are absent in eukaryotes. 0 However, the presence of lactose (and therefore allolactose) changes the conformation of LacI so that it releases from the operator and permits lac operon transcription. Operons consist of multiple genes grouped together with a promoter and an operator. 0000025884 00000 n The Lac operon is the classic example of gene regulation in E. coli, in which the production of the enzyme ä-galactosidase (lactase) is induced by the presence of lactose in the growth medium. 10.
