Transcription is the primary site of control in prokaryotes Prokaryotic genes are arranged in operons Promoters drive the expression of genes

Coordinate Regulation Expression of several or numerous genes can be controlled simultaneously. Operon : a set of genes that are transcribed from the same promoter and controlled by the same regulatory sites. Regulon : a set of genes (and/or operons) expressed from separate promoter sites, but controlled by the same regulatory molecule. Global regulons may coordinate expression of many genes and operons, and may induce some, but repress others.
