The Great Idea of Jacob and The Great Idea of Jacob and Monod: Genes that Control Genes Monod: Genes that Control Genes Observations on phage life cycle and bacterial growth in presence of different sugars led to picture of gene regulation. Use of sugars other than glucose (such as lactose) seemed to be tightly controlled. (Muller-Hill)

RNA Polymerase: Bound or Not? RNA Polymerase: Bound or Not? (Cramer ‘02) (Ptashne and Gann) For us, the whole question of transcriptional regulation will come down to the question of whether or not RNAP is bound to the promoter or not! There are an array of molecules (transcription factors) that participate in recruiting RNAP to its promoter.
