Determine whether gene lac I and lac O is functioning?

... with lactose , with IPTG. ONPG is used in all sample to determine the beta galactosidase. I know that both lactose and IPTG can associate with lac repressor and cause expression. If the result of these three treatment only with IPTG appears yellow, can you deduce lac I and lac O which is functioning ...

mRNA transcripts, cis/trans-acting questions

... to metabolize galactose. All of the mutants fail to transcribe the GAL2 gene, which encodes the enzyme for the first step in metabolizing galactose. ... d. probably a loss-of-function mutation in the gene encoding a repressor to the operon?

... can explain anything of how we came about. All evidence points toward gene loss over time. There is NO evidence of totally new genes appearing ... it's evident that new phenotypes most often evolve due to loss of some repressor gene and not due to appearance of some new gene. So, in my opinion, ...

Gene enhancers/repressors in Drosophilia stripes

... that I can't seem to answer correctly/articulate in the right way. Gene expresses 2 stripes, 1 in the anterior and 1 in the posterior. The same ... enhancers might specify the 2 stripes. You may use the activity of a repressor. You may modulate the affinity or number of binding sites (but ...
