In prokaryotes, gene activity is controlled foremost at the level of transcription, at its initiation. The structural genes are usually grouped together in operons, which are transcribed from one promoter controlled by a regulatory protein. Regulator gene ==== === prom. Operon promoter operator structural genes mRNA regulatory protein polycistronic mRN Termination: A single gene transcription is terminated out of the protein-coding segment of the gene at the end of the 3 ' untranscribed regions (3 UTR).

TRANSCRIPTIONAL CONTROL OF GENE EXPRESSION IN PROKARYOTES WThe two well studied main mechanisms of transcriptional control of gene expression are: 1. The operons : genes involved in a metabolic pathway are regrouped into a gene cluster controlled by common regulatory sequences and proteins. The expression of these genes ar Transcription initiation by RNA polymerase II in a eucaryotic cell Transcription initiation in vivo requires the presence of transcriptional activator proteins (coded by gene-specific transcription factors). These proteins bind to specific short sequences in DNA. Although only one is shown here, a typical eucaryotic gene

gene is used to direct protein synthesis and produce the structures of the cell. Genes that code for amino acid sequences are known as 'structural genes'. The process of gene expression involves two main stages: Transcription: the production of messenger RNA (mRNA) by the enzyme RNA polymerase, and the processing of the resulting mRNA molecul Transcription of a gene takes place in three stages: initiation, elongation, and termination. Here, we will briefly see how these steps happen in bacteria. You can learn more about the details of each stage (and about how eukaryotic transcription is different) in the stages of transcription article. Initiation In replication entire DNA molecule is normally copied. In transcription a particular gene or group of genes are copied at any time, & some portions of DNA are never transcribed. Gene is a segment of DNA that codes for a type of Protein or for RNA & may present on any strand of DNA (contain many genes.
Recruitment of the PIC by gene-specific activators is the most fundamental mechanism through which transcription is induced, but PIC assembly is also influenced profoundly by the positioning or modification of histones, the basic building block of chromatin.

Transcription is the first step of gene expression. During this process, the DNA sequence of a gene is copied into RNA. Before transcription can take place, the DNA double helix must unwind near the gene that is getting transcribed. The region of opened-up DNA is called a transcription bubble These subunits assemble every time a gene is transcribed, and they disassemble once transcription is complete. Each subunit has a unique role; the two α -subunits are necessary to assemble the polymerase on the DNA; the β -subunit binds to the ribonucleoside triphosphate that will become part of the nascent recently born mRNA molecule; and the β ' binds the DNA template strand Transcription. Transcription is the process by which DNA is copied ( transcribed) to mRNA, which carries the information needed for protein synthesis. Transcription takes place in two broad steps. First, pre-messenger RNA is formed, with the involvement of RNA polymerase enzymes
Step 1: Initiation. Initiation is the beginning of transcription. It occurs when the enzyme RNA polymerase binds to a region of a gene called the promoter. This signals the DNA to unwind so the enzyme can ''read'' the bases in one of the DNA strands. The enzyme is now ready to make a strand of mRNA with a complementary sequence of bases DNA transcription is a process that involves transcribing genetic information from DNA to RNA.The transcribed DNA message, or RNA transcript, is used to produce proteins.DNA is housed within the nucleus of our cells.It controls cellular activity by coding for the production of proteins A gene is a database entry with an Ensembl gene ID. a computer scientist A gene is what Wikipedia says it is. a student A gene is a locatable region of genomic sequence, corresponding to a unit of inheritance, which is associated with regulatory regions, transcribed regions and/or other functional sequence regions. Wikipedi A great example of regulation of gene transcription comes from prokaryotes and their regulation of metabolic enzymes to break down sugars (lactose, glucose, etc.) if all enzymes where transcribed it would be too energetically costly Therefore the must control transcription based on the presence of what sugar is present Gene Transcription in Prokaryotes ¥Operons : in prokaryotes, genes that encode protein participating in a common pathway are organized together. ÐThis group of genes, arranged in tandem, is called an OPERON. ¥Genes of an operon are transcribed together into a single mRNA molecule: Ðpolycistronic mRNA. ¥There are two types of bacterial genes
Introduction § Gene regulation primarily operates at the level of transcription - determines which genes will be transcribed into RNA in specific tissues or in response to specific stimuli. Ø Operates at the level of chromatin structure so that the DNA that is to be transcribed moves to a more open chromatin structure allowing access to regulatory molecules & target genes to be transcribed • -10 and -35 region 5' of transcription start site • Local unwinding of double-stranded DNA • RNA pol recognizes transcription start site • RNA pol adds nucleotides 5' to 3' • RNA pol termination RNA pol and RNA molecule released •Rho-dependent •Rho-independent (hairpin loop; termination.

A gene is a particular segment of DNA. The sequence of bases in for a gene determines the sequence of nucleotides along an RNA molecule. Only one strand of a DNA double helix is transcribed for each gene. This strand is known as the 'template strand'. The same template strand of DNA is used every time that particular gene is transcribed Homeotic genes are master control genes that regulate organs that develop in specific parts of the body. Homeobox genes share a similar 130-base DNA sequence called homeobox. They code for transcription factors that activate other genes that are important in cell development and differentiation in certain regions of the body

The above discrepancy can be explained by the different features of the studied genes. Transcription units of lampbrushes exceed gene length, include repetitive sequences that add up to hundreds of kilobases, and measure from several to hundreds of microns (Macgregor, 1993 Moreover, the large number of gene transcripts poses a computational burden, as the number of possible edges in a gene network grows quadratically.

Post-transcriptional gene silencing (PTGS) in plants is an RNA-degradation mechanism that shows similarities to RNA interference (RNAi) in animals. Indeed, both involve double-stranded RNA (dsRNA), spread within the organism from a localised initiating area, correlate with the accumulation of small interfering RNA (siRNA) and require putative. Many genes, which are transcribed at low rates (e.g. genes encoding the enzymes required for basic metabolic processes required in all cells, often called housekeeping genes) do not contain a TATA box or an initiator. Most genes of this type contain a CG-rich region, or CpG island, of 20-50 nucleotides within ~100 bas

In eukaryotes the enzyme RNA polymerase joins with several transcription factor proteins at the pro-moter, which is a special sequence of base pairs on the DNA template strand that signals the beginning of a gene. The transcription factor proteins, along with the RNA polymerase, is called the. Gene structure is the organisation of specialised sequence elements within a gene. Genes contain the information necessary for living cells to survive and reproduce. In most organisms, genes are made of DNA, where the particular DNA sequence determines the function of the gene. A gene is transcribed (copied) from DNA into RNA, which can either. Transcription factor, molecule that controls the activity of a gene by determining whether the gene's DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) is transcribed into RNA (ribonucleic acid). The enzyme RNA polymerase catalyzes the chemical reactions that synthesize RNA, using the gene's DNA as a template.
