operon

Groups of bacterial genes with a common promotor, that are controlled as a unit and produce mRNA as a single piece, polycistronic messenger. An operon consists of two or more structural genes, which usually code for proteins with related metabolic functions, and associated control elements that regulate the transcription of the structural genes. The first described example was the lac operon> lacoperon. ...

Operon

Operon: A set of genes transcribed under the control of an operator gene. More specifically, an operon is a segment of DNA containing adjacent genes including structural genes, an operator gene, and a regulatory gene. An operon is thus a functional unit of transcription and genetic regulation. Operons are found in many prokaryotic organisms (bacter...

operon

(op´әr-on) in prokaryotes, a chromosomal segment constituting a functional unit of transcription and so of genetic regulation. It is made up of one or more structural genes, their promoter, and an operator region that through interaction with a regulator protein controls the structural genes.

operon

operon, in genetics, site on a bacterial chromosome containing genes that control protein synthesis (structural genes) together with a gene that determines whether the structural genes are active or not (operator gene). See nucleic acid.

operon

Group of genes that are found next to each other on a chromosome, and are turned on and off as an integrated unit. They usually produce enzymes that control different steps in the same biochemical pathway by a single operator gene. Operons were discovered in 1961 (by the French biochemists François Jacob and Jacques Monod) in bacteria. They ar...

Operon

In genetics, an operon is a functioning unit of genomic DNA containing a cluster of genes under the control of a single promoter. The genes are transcribed together into an mRNA strand and either translated together in the cytoplasm, or undergo trans-splicing to create monocistronic mRNAs that are translated separately, i.e. several strands of mRN...
