15: Positive and negative control of gene expression
Cells with the same DNA can look and function differently from each other; consider a photoreceptor cell and muscle cell. The difference between these two cells is the result of differential gene expression.
Some genes are transcribed and translated in all cells at about the same level, but other genes may be expressed in one cell type but not another. This session will briefly outline some general principles of gene regulation. In addition, a specific example of gene regulation in bacteria will be presented in detail. For this session, watch the first 30 minutes of the video lecture called "Gene Regulation" by Prof. Eric Lander recorded in Don't show me this again.

An operon is a cluster of coordinately regulated genes. It includes structural genes generally encoding enzymes , regulatory genes encoding, e. The type of control is defined by the response of the operon when no regulatory protein is present. In the case of negative control , the genes in the operon are expressed unless they are switched off by a repressor protein. Thus the operon will be turned on constitutively the genes will be expressed when the repressor in inactivated. In the case of positive control , the genes are expressed only when an active regulator protein, e.
positive and negative regulation. Negative regulation of lac operon. In the absence of lactose (termed inducer), the Lac repressor (product of.
Operon model. An operon is a group of structural genes whose expression is coordinated by an operator. The repressor encoded by a regulatory gene binds to the operator and represses the transcription of operon.
Regulation of Gene Expression. Cellular function is influenced by cellular environment. Adaptation to specific environments is achieved by regulating the expression of genes that encode the enzymes and proteins needed for survival in a particular environment.
November 6, ]. The biological activities of each cell are largely determined by the active proteins expressed in it. But in cells, some proteins are found in very low quantities, and others are quite abundant, so how is this protein expression controlled? A cell needs a different enzyme to transport each molecule into the cell, and yet another to breakdown or change each of these molecules into something usable to the cell. If the cell simultaneously and constantly produced every enzyme it could possibly need, it would take more energy to produce all these enzymes than what would be derived from breaking down the molecules.

The lactose operon lac operon is an operon required for the transport and metabolism of lactose in E. Although glucose is the preferred carbon source for most bacteria, the lac operon allows for the effective digestion of lactose when glucose is not available through the activity of beta-galactosidase. It is often discussed in introductory molecular and cellular biology classes for this reason. Their work on the lac operon won them the Nobel Prize in Physiology in Bacterial operons are polycistronic transcripts that are able to produce multiple proteins from one mRNA transcript. In this case, when lactose is required as a sugar source for the bacterium, the three genes of the lac operon can be expressed and their subsequent proteins translated: lacZ , lacY , and lacA. Finally, lacA encodes Galactoside acetyltransferase.
