Gene Regulation

Can you please go over gene regulation and cell respiration

@Munch
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. https://www.khanacademy.org/science/biology/gene-regulation/gene-regulation-in-bacteria/a/overview-gene-regulation-in-bacteria

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. https://www.khanacademy.org/science/biology/gene-regulation/gene-regulation-in-eukaryotes/a/overview-of-eukaryotic-gene-regulation

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:
