Gene Regulation

Can you please go over gene regulation and cell respiration

Here’s the replay of gene expression that Ms. Koffke streamed earlier. I would definitely start out watching this replay, and then if you have more questions, you can refer to the khan academy articles I linked.

Gene regulation is split into two parts: prokaryotes and eukaryotes.

Prokaryotic gene regulation occurs during transcription through operons. Here’s a khan academy article that explain prokaryotic gene regulation. The trp and lac operons are explained in the articles after the one linked.

Eukaryotic gene expression occurs through more processes and is a bit more complicated than prokaryotic gene expression. Here’s a khan academy article that explains it more in detail.

I don’t think you’ll need to know these in extreme detail, so long as you understand the basics, you should be good to go.

Hope this helps :slight_smile:
