The role of cyclicAmp in lac open? A-positive control,b-magnetic control, c-negetive control 

Asked by amitjena226 30th November 2017, 11:33 AM
Answered by Expert

cyclic AMP or cAMP is involved in the positive regulation of the lac operon. In an environment with a low glucose concentration, cAMP accumulates and binds to the allosteric site on CRP (cAMP receptor protein), a transcription activator protein. The protein assumes its active shape and binds to a specific site upstream of the lac promoter, making it easier for RNA polymerase to bind to the adjacent promoter to start transcription of the lac operon, increasing the rate of lac operon transcription. With a high glucose concentration, the cAMP concentration decreases, and the CRP disengages from the lac operon.
