Instructions: In your initial discussion board post, please include the following: 1.Describe an operon, the regulatory proteins, the cellular process and the molecules being “sensed”. 2.Include details about the orientation of the genes and the promoter/operator sequences or activator binding site. 3.Provide details about the repressor/activator and inducer/inhibitor proteins. 4.Explain how the operon helps microbe survive and possibly thrive in its environment. 5.Include details about conditions that trigger expression of the gene(s). 6.Explain when this regulation occurs: During transcription, translation, or posttranslation
