Chapter 19: Regulation of Gene Expression inBacteria and Bacteriophages
Through evolutionary processes,
organisms have developed ways
to compensate for environmental changes.Alter gene activity to optimize
growth and reproduction in a
given environment.
Two Types of Genes
1) Regulated Genes
activity is controlled in response to theneeds of a cell or organism.2) Constitutive genes - (housekeeping genes) always active(e.g. protein synthesis and Glucose metabolism)
