Lac Operon

Lac operon definition The lactose or lac operon of Escherichia coli is a cluster of three structural genes encoding proteins involved in lactose metabolism and the sites on the DNA involved in the regulation of the operon. Many protein-coding genes in bacteria are clustered together in operons which serve as transcriptional units that are coordinately regulated. … Read more Lac operon- definition, structure, Inducers, diagram

Glycolysis- Steps, ATP generation and Significance

Glycolysis- Steps, ATP generation and Significance Fermentation and respiration are two major strategies for energy conservation in chemoorganotrophs. The glycolytic pathway is a major metabolic pathway for microbial fermentation which involves the catabolism of glucose into pyruvate. It is also called the Embden–Meyerhof–Parnas pathway for its major discoverers. Regardless of whether glucose is fermented or … Read more Glycolysis- Steps, ATP generation and Significance
