🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Chopra's class at HCC.

Solution: If E. coli bacteria are grown in the absence of lactose: a. The repressor will not bind the operator allowing transcription of the lac operon genesb. The repressor will bind the operator allowing transcription of the lac operon genesc. The repressor will not bind the operator preventing transcription of the lac operon genesd. The repressor will bind the operator preventing transcription of the lac operon gene

Problem

a. The repressor will not bind the operator allowing transcription of the lac operon genes

b. The repressor will bind the operator allowing transcription of the lac operon genes

c. The repressor will not bind the operator preventing transcription of the lac operon genes

d. The repressor will bind the operator preventing transcription of the lac operon gene
