In the wild-type strain (genotype: R+ P+ O+ att+ trpE+ trpC+), the trpE and trpC genes are fully induced in the absence of tryptophan and fully repressed in the presence of tryptophan. Key: R = functional repressor gene; Rn = product cannot bind tryptophan; R- = product cannot bind operator O = functional operator; O- = operator cannot bind repressor protein att = functional attenuator; att- = a deletion of the attenuator sequence P = functional promoter; P- = a deletion of the trp operon promoter trpE- and trpC- = produce non-functional protein products 1) R+ P- O+ att+ trpE+ trpC+ 2) R- P+ O+ att+ trpE+ trpC+ 3) Rn P+ O+ att+ trpE+ trpC+ 4) R- P+ O+ att- trpE+ trpC+ 5) R+ P+ O- att+ trpE+ trpC- / R- P+ O+ att+ trpE- trpC+ 6) R+ P- O+ att+ trpE+ trpC- / R- P+ O+ att+ trpE- trpC+ 7) R+ P+ O- att- trpE+ trpC- / R- P+ O- att+ trpE- trpC+ Give the correct genotypes (1 to 7) for the following: Trp = TrpE (-), trpC (-); No Trp = TrpE (-), trpC (-) Trp = TrpE (-), trpC (-); No Trp = TrpE (+), trpC (+) Trp = TrpE (-), trpC (-); No Trp = TrpE (+), trpC (+) Trp = TrpE (+), trpC (+); No Trp = TrpE (+), trpC (+) Trp = TrpE (-), trpC (-); No Trp = TrpE (+), trpC (+) Trp = TrpE (-), trpC (-); No Trp = TrpE (-), trpC (+) Trp = TrpE (+), trpC (-); No Trp = TrpE (+), trpC (+) • Show less
