Gene regulation in prokaryotes

This lecture explains about the Gene regulation in prokaryotes. Regulation of gene expression entails a broad range of mechanisms that are used by cells to develop or diminish the production of specific gene products (protein or RNA), and is informally termed gene legislation. Subtle applications of gene expression are greatly located in biology, for example to trigger developmental pathways, respond to environmental stimuli, or adapt to new food sources. Practically any step of gene expression may also […]

Prokaryotic Gene Regulation: Lac Operon

The first fully described genetic regulatory mechanism is the lac operon in E. coli bacteria. Today, it still represents an adequate model for prokaryotic gene regulation. An operon is a transcription unit of genes whose products are required under identical circumstances. So, it facilitates the coordinated expression of multiple genes.
