Gene Regulation
Gene Regulation refers to the processes thatcells use to turn the information on genes intogene products.This functional gene product may be RNA or Protein & the majority of known mechanismsregulate protein coding genes.Gene regulation is essential for viruses,prokaryotes & eukaryotes as it increases theversatility & adaptability of an organism byallowing the cell to express protein when needed.The first example of gene regulation system wasthe lac operon, discovered by Jacob & Monod, inwhich protein involved in lactose metabolism areexpressed by E.coli only in the presence of lactose and absence of glucose.
