Trp Operon Structure

Tryptophan (Trp) Operon Many protein-coding genes in bacteria are clustered together in operons which serve as transcriptional units that are coordinately regulated. It was Jacob and Monod in 1961 who proposed the operon model for the regulation of transcription. The operon model proposes three elements: A set of structural genes (i.e. genes encoding the proteins to be regulated); An operator …
