The upcoming discussion will update you about the differences between induction and repression of operon.
1. It turns the operon on.
2. It starts transcription and translations.
3. It is caused by a new metabolite which needs enzymes to get metabolized.
4. It operates in a catabolic pathway.
5. Repressor is prevented by the inducer from joining the operator gene.
1. It turns the operon off.
2. It stops transcription and translation
3. It is caused by an excess of existing metabolite.
4. It operates in an anabolic pathway.
5. Aporepressor is enabled by a co-repressor to join the operator gene.
