Lac Operon

10 Mar

I’m typically not a fan of McGraw-Hill’s animations because they are rather dry and un-engaging, however, this one does a good job of describing conditions under which the lac operon will be either ‘on’ or ‘off’ and¬†illustrating how positive and negative regulatory elements work together so that the operon is on when needed, but conserves energy by remaining off when it is not needed.
