Gene Regulation in Bacteria and Bacteriophages Gene regulation means that the level of gene expression can vary under different conditions. Unregulated genes, which have constant levels of expression, are called constitutive genes. The majority of genes are regulated. The processes of metabolism, response to environmental stress, and cell division are all regulated processes in the cell.

Transcriptional Regulation Transcriptional regulation involves the actions of regulatory proteins that bind to the DNA and affect the rate of transcription. Repressors inhibit transcription, which is called negative control.

Transcriptional Regulation Effector molecules do not interact directly with the DNA, but rather directly with the repressors or activators.

Transcriptional Regulation Effector molecules do not interact directly with the DNA, but rather directly with the repressors or activators. This usually results in a conformational change in the activator or repressor.
