FREE Expert Solution

The different components shown in the problem are involved with in the expression of genes. In different systems of gene expression, the genes interact with proteins that enhance or signal the initiation of the gene expression.

A. An activator binds to DNA and stimulates gene transcription. It is a protein. An example of this is cAMP receptor protein (CRP). Activators bind to the enhancers. It is a P.
