An operon is a group of genes that are clustered together in a series and whose products are involved in a specific function. They are grouped so that they can be turned on at the same time when their function is needed. This is to save for the energy and resources. The given problem stated that the operon in question is a repressible operon.
Repressible operons require that ____ binds to the repressor protein before it can bind to the operator.
A. the product
B. a cofactor
C. a coenzyme
D. the substrate
E. the reactant
