The rate of transcription of a gene is often the most important step.

Review: genes are in operons in bacteria promoter operator RNA pol. Genes in operon Repressor protein can bind operator to block RNA polymerase.

Eukaryotes have NO: -operons or operator -repressor that physically blocks RNA polymerase Rarely have regulatory proteins that bind small molecules (like Trp & Trp repressor in bacteria.) Eukaryotic RNA pol. doesn’t even bind the promoter by itself!

These are general trans- cription factors; they act in transcription of all genes. Some transcription factors bind to DNA; some bind to other transcription factors.

Transcription initiation complex doesn’t bind the promoter well. By itself; it gives very low transcription. Additional “specific” transcription factors enhance transcription.

Specific transcription factors bind DNA at sequences called control elements and help the initiation complex bind the promoter. initiation complex control element

control element 1. Proximal ; close to promoter (some people consider them part of the promoter) 2. Distal ; far from promoter. Groups of these are
