Regulating gene expression in bacteria - the operon model - regulatory proteins bind specific DNA sequences to control gene expression - allosteric proteins –> enable conditional gene expression - polycistronic (multiple genes) transcripts –> coordinated regulation (bacteria only) - multilevel regulation transcription, translation, enzyme function Text chapter 17, question bank B

Protein synthesis is expensive! • in energy (ATP, GTP) • in C, N => genes should be expressed only when needed. Cells must adapt to changing conditions nutrients stress time of day sensory experience - learning - require different sets of proteins

gene regulation in bacteria • operons clusters of functionally related genes expressed in a polycistronic transcript and coordinately regulated. • the lac operon encodes enzymes that convert lactose to glucose • sigma proteins (but how is sigma protein expression regulated?) RNA polymerase

Bacterial growth on sugar mixtures (Monod , 1940-41) Log (cell number) time glucose “diauxie” glucose + lactose only glucose used lactose used “enzymatic adaptation?”

Lactose catabolism in E. coli lactose permease glucose + galactose galactosidase lacZ + lacY + galactosidase permease
Background image of page 6
lac mutants - cannot grow on lactose: - genes identified by complementation testing: lacZ + lacY x lacZ lacY + Diploid: grows on lactose? A: yes B: no lacZ + lacY lacZ lacY + galactosidase permease Clicker question

Inducibility Permease and galactosidase activities are high only in the presence of lactose enzyme activity time lactose added - the enzymes are inducible and coordinately regulated; lactose is an inducer Adaptive enzymes? or inducible gene expression?
Background image of page 8
if lactose is: absent present lacI high high galactosidase
